Who would have thought in late October the Northeast would be dealing with power outages, school closings, downed trees, and much more as a result of a snow storm? With areas hit with as much as 30 inches of the white stuff, many towns had to cancel Halloween.
The power outages, road closures and other weather-related issues not only affected trick or treaters, but also impacted many businesses from DC to Maine — demonstrating the need for every organization to develop business continuity plans that include the necessary data backup and recovery solutions to protect their ever-changing technology environments.
This rare winter storm serves as a good reminder for all organizations to review their business continuity plan. You never know when the next system failure could occur. Will you be prepared?
