Hurricane Florence may not be headed directly toward the DC region, but will certainly impact association and nonprofit operations across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic United States. Wherever you are, it’s never too soon to be prepared for similar potential disasters.
Here’s a rundown of resources to help your association or nonprofit weather the storm—now or in the future.
1. Is your data safe from floods or other environmental disasters? If you subscribe to IaaS, make sure your cloud host provides built-in geographic redundancy. If you’re in the path of Hurricane Florence, there may be little you can do at the last minute. Act now (or as soon as you can) to prepare for the next storm, tornado, earthquake, etc.
3. Your MSP (managed services provider) may be able to help you keep IT operations running with limited interruption. Check with your MSP to see what they’re doing to provide support and ask if they’re taking any extra steps on your behalf.
