Business Protection Checklist

checklistEvery business has critical data and applications they need to protect – personal work stored on laptops, business applications running on servers, or infrastructure systems like email and payroll.  All of this information is vital to the operation of any business.

If you are a small or medium-sized business, looking after all this data is a major challenge.  You have limited budgets and limited IT resources.  Let’s face it, sometimes things go wrong.  Laptops get stolen.  Email servers fail.  Someone accidentally deletes a file, or even worse, an entire folder of vital business information.  Systems get hacked, files get corrupted, and as we all know, disasters like fire, hurricanes and floods do happen.
