Managing Directors and CEOs What worries you the most about your IT?
Managing Directors and CEOs should have these at the top of their list:
I.T. failure. How quickly can you recover?
Data and compliance. Do you meet your obligations?
Meeting revenue targets. Is I.T. holding back staff productivity?
Here are just 3 essential IT strategies:
- Implement business continuity and data protection so that you can be operational quickly under any circumstances.
- Close “backdoor access” to your important data by implementing a layered security approach from Firewalls to End Point protection.
- Host your essential email in secure datacentres, away from your business, so it’s always available for staff on their mobile devices no matter what happens to your office system.
If any of your preventative measures fail and you need to implement part of your Disaster Recovery plan, has your plan been tested to ensure it meets your expectations?
