The summer after sixth grade, a family from Sugar City, Idaho, moved in with their cousins on my street. They had survived the Teton damn disaster, losing their home and all their belongings. Through this experience, we hear, first hand, the things that were most difficult about such a situation.
Natural disasters hurt not only families, but can devastate businesses. In 1976, protecting all this data was extremely difficult and time consuming. Today, most of our business files are (or can be) digitized. So backing them up and protecting ourselves is just a matter of setting up a reliable system.
There are myriad data storage systems offering services in all price ranges. Take the time today to make sure your invaluable business files (and all the associated work!) are safely archived.
If you have anything in your business that would be difficult or impossible to reproduce, it should be backed up offsite. If the unthinkable happens, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the rebuilding process will be as smooth as possible.
