How Your Team Should Prepare for the 2020 Hurricane Season

There is a 60% chance that this years’ Atlantic Hurricane Season will be above normal.

The 2020 Hurricane Season is slated to be an active one, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There is a 60% chance that this years’ Atlantic Hurricane Season will be above normal. With the challenges that have come with the COVID-19 pandemic and working from home orders, the stakes are higher than ever.

According to the National Hurricane Survival Initiative, 40% of small businesses that close due to hurricane damage will never reopen. The time to start planning is now. Could you lose your data? Your email? Your servers?

A disaster recovery plan is one piece of your overarching business continuity (BC) plan that will help you maintain business functions or quickly resume after a hurricane. UDT’s Hurricane Ready Solution (HRS) will help you prepare for an imminent hurricane event and act as an emergency response during a disaster or immediately following.

The HRS is structured to provide three stages of support:

  1. An assessment of your current recovery posture
  2. Engineering support to prepare the environment in advance of a hurricane
  3. Emergency IT support if a hurricane reaches your location and has the potential to cause a business interruption

If you’re ready to prepare your business for this upcoming season, call 800-822-9919 x1 or email [email protected] to discuss personalized plans for your business, including local and offsite backup solutions.
