Protect Your Tech

Ways to Protect Your Tech from Natural Disasters Disasters can strike at anytime and the best we can do is be prepared.

1. Safeguard your hardware’s physical assets Flood-proof your workspace and secure vital technology in water and fireproof safes. Keep tech away from windows and unplug devices to avoid damage from a power surge or flood.

2. Back up your data Perform backups routinely and store data remotely. Keep a complete inventory of where your data is stored especially if you’re using multiple platforms or systems.

3. Have a disaster plan in place Your emergency plan should cover everything you need, including where you can secure a backup laptop or portable power source.

BONUS After any natural disaster, perform a risk assessment to identify what worked, what didn’t, and what you should change in the event of another disaster.
