2020 has turned how we do business on its ear as we have all experienced the same tumultuous business landscape. But we have noticed ONE glaring difference that has stood out for our clients. They have survived and thrived because of the ability to pivot based on systems and plans put in place.

With a Plan B, their businesses were built for storms. You can do the same for 2021 for your employees, and your company with these 5 steps:

5 Steps to Keep Your Business Resilient for 2021:

    1. Have a Back-up and Recovery Plan
      • Data backup and recovery is the most important service you could ever sign up for. Your data is essential for running your business and serving your clients. When this data is lost because of an unanticipated natural disaster or theft, you need to make sure you can recover quickly to prevent revenue and customer decline.
    2. Cybersecurity Protection
      • Implementing your network’s security and being in compliance are two separate essential measures that can not be ignored in today’s world. Apply the best methods to safeguard your data while still following the standards your organization must adhere to. Including employee resources and security, training should also be mandatory.
    3. Remote access 
      • Putting in place secure remote access capabilities for all your employees working from home and online is key to thriving in 2021. Paired with this should be employee training to give resources and guidelines on best telecommunications and remote access policies.
    4. Virtualization
      • Optimizing your time, workloads, and network servers will keep your costs down and manageable.
    5. Don’t DIY
      • Do It Yourself is an effective way to get things done; however, when it comes to setting up your company’s technical operations, it is out of fashion. Hire experts needed to set your network and all IT operations for success the first time. 

Taking these steps will help you kick off the new year strong. By safeguarding your IT, you protect your employees, customers, and your bottom line.
