Earlier this year, Preferred IT Group’s owner, Jason Horne, was asked to speak at a Datto conference in Portland on the importance of having a business continuity plan. Preferred IT Group partners with Datto to provide secure backup solutions for our clients.

As an expert on business continuity, Jason (and the rest of the Preferred IT Group), urges everyone to create a strong disaster recovery plan in case the worst happens. Business continuity plans are something we take extra time to create and tailor for each of our clients because no matter the size or location of your business, you have a responsibility to your customers and employees to protect their information. With a business continuity plan, you can ensure that you will be able to continue your business operations during and after a disaster. These disasters could include (but are not limited to) natural disasters such as a lightning strike that takes out your power, or man-made disasters such as a ransomware virus completely encrypting all of your files.

Preferred IT Group specializes in creating business continuity plans that work. We know how to keep your systems and your data safe from disaster. Creating a plan doesn’t take long, and after spending a few hours with us, you will greatly increase the chances of your business surviving a disaster.

Do you know your business continuity plan? Are you satisfied with it? Has it been tested prior to a real disaster to ensure that everything works correctly?

If you don’t know the answer to these questions, or if you don’t like your answers—give our experts a call. In the meantime, check out our ebook on business continuity planning to learn more about how it works and why it is so important.
