Last year, Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast, knocking out power, flooding streets and disrupting business process. The effects of the storm were long-lasting, as those companies lacking business continuity or disaster recovery plans worked to recoup lost data and precious time spent getting themselves up and running again, rather than serving clients.
With the storm in mind, numerous groups and federal entities have called on organizations to prepare for what many believe will be an even bigger and badder storms in the future. But with all this good advice in mind and resources at hand, how have your clients responded?
Oops, I did it again
In a recent article for MSPmentor, Jessica Davis asked MSPs whether their customers are just like her, in that "disaster recovery" has meant buying a "little crank-powered radio."
"If your customers are like me, they have probably have considered different options for better disaster planning but put off any major action," Davis explained. "Implementing that [disaster recovery] plan is something I can do next week. The big disaster is passed and we survived. I have several other major fires this week to deal with before I can move onto proactive solutions, anyway."
