Halloween is upon us, which means zombies could attack at a moment's notice; are you prepared? How about your company? If you want your company to survive a Zombie Apocalypse, follow our three step guide below to ensure you'll be able to restore operations after it's over.
1. Corporate data is an appetizing treat. Your firm's data is its most valuable commodity; so, even if there isn't a horde of zombies looking to feast off your sensitive information, you should still be weary of the growing number of cyber-criminals out there who are. Be sure to have security safeguards in place to protect your sensitive data from anyone (or thing) looking for access to corporate secrets or user identities.
2. Back up and get out. In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, or any other type of disaster, be sure your data is stored and backed up. Hard drives, disks, and tapes stored on premise are no match for zombies who are not known for their grace and agility. It's best to migrate your data to a cloud-based or hybrid environment. Virtualization in the cloud enables companies to store mission-critical information and applications in a secure environment, mitigating the risk of a zombie takeover.
Additionally, with a cloud environment, employees can use mobile devices from the safety of their homes to ensure productivity is maintained without risk of being harmed.
3. Plan for tomorrow. For your business to survive a Zombie Apocalypse, you'll need a business continuity plan. With your data already secure and backed up to the cloud, and employees safely maintaining productivity from their mobile devices, all that's left to do is implement a business continuity plan in order to successfully restore operations back to their previous splendor.
