|Losing what matters most?|
We all know that accidents can happen, usually when they are least expected, least welcome or least helpful. We all know that most accidents are preventable and, although we may not like to admit it, in general most "situations" can be avoided. Take your business internet connection for example. We all like to think that it will always be there. But will it?
A careless bit of local authority roadworks, a technical fault within the telecoms network, an equipment failure at your premises - any of these could stop your connection. What effect would it have on your business? Could you still function? How much would it cost you? Your business relies heavily on your internet connection so much these days that the consequences of loss do not bear thinking about – email, web, vpn, voip, credit card authentication, online trading and so much more can stop in a second.
So why doesn't each business take a step back and look at simple steps they could take to minimise the risk? It seems to be that "out of sight is out of mind". We all have vehicle insurance, burglar alarms, key man cover, life insurance and health cover. Most of these cost far more than protecting your internet connection. Yet, on a day-to-day basis what would cause your organisation wider and more far-reaching disruption? Many businesses have now taken steps to ensure they are protected from such a scenario. Have you?
