Protect your business data when you’re on holiday

We all look forward to taking some time off at the end of the year and going on holiday. You’ve worked hard for this break and should spend it relaxing with family and friends, not worrying about what could happen if your server crashes.

We all look forward to taking some time off at the end of the year and going on holiday. You’ve worked hard for this break and should spend it relaxing with family and friends, not worrying about what could happen if your server crashes.

Your happy time can come to an abrupt end if you discover that your business data has been compromised.

Don't let the Grinch steal your data

So here’s a scenario for you to consider: You’ve survived the year and finally made it to your well-earned break where you can switch off your laptop and lie on a sandy beach. But your server crashes while no-one is paying attention. What happens to your files and your business data?

A Christmas Nightmare

Do you have a plan in place in case something disrupts your systems? For example, what if a storm causes a power outage that results in you losing important data if it isn’t backed up. What can you do to prepare for this nightmare situation? Do you have a contingency plan for the holidays?

Many businesses close or cut back on their services at this time of year, so this is the moment when you’re at your most vulnerable. If something goes wrong, it might take some time for the problem to be picked up and rectified because you and your staff aren’t on regular duty.
