September officially marks National Preparedness Month, and organizations like Ready.gov, FEMA, The American Red Cross, Mass.gov, and others are celebrating by sharing their tips for preparing your families, homes, and businesses for natural disasters. Here at Intronis we’re always celebrating preparedness, whether it's by helping our MSP Partners to back up their customers’ critical data offsite to the cloud, educating small businesses on the threat of data loss, or by encouraging MSPs to create and implement a disaster recovery plan for their customers.
Why SMBs need to be prepared
Most small businesses aren’t prepared to deal with a data loss event, whether it's caused a natural disaster, equipment failure, cybersecurity attack, or any of the other common threats. Many SMBs assume, “Oh, that will never happen to me.” But, data loss happens all the time, and cybercriminals are targeting small businesses more than ever. That’s why it’s so important for IT service providers to educate their customers about the importance of data protection and implement solutions to protect them from these types of events.
Spreading the word
So in the spirit of National Preparedness Month and to help spread this message, our very own Chris Crellin, VP of product management here at Intronis, was interviewed on yesterday’s live broadcast of the Computer America radio show. This is the longest running, nationally-syndicated radio talk show dedicated to computers and technology. Chris sat down with Craig Crossman, the host of Computer America, to discuss the importance of having a disaster recovery plan in place and backing up critical business data to the cloud to prepare businesses for potential disaster.
