How to Protect Your Electronics Against Disaster

We all rely on electronics in the office to conduct a variety of business-related tasks, both during and after office hours.

Just as with personally-owned devices, it’s important for companies to develop a game plan that will ensure these electronics and the data they carry are protected in the event of a natural disaster so that you can pick up where you left off.

Practical Protection 

Have a company disaster protection policy that incorporates measures that address disaster situations. Your policy can include:

  • Keeping waterproof or plastic bags nearby to protect and stash devices
  • Keeping an extra power strip inside the gear bag
  • Ensuring default settings are in battery-saving modes
  • Using a portable device charger and having it attached to the phone or tablet when not in use
  • Signing everyone up for weather or other disaster alerts
  • Having employees set up an ICE (in case of emergency) contact
  • Creating a backup plan if 911 is overwhelmed.

Cloud Backup

In the event your electronics are in fact destroyed, as long as all important data is stored in the cloud, restoration is essentially as easy as obtaining another device. Whether its documents, scans, images, or other files make sure employees understand that working from the cloud retains data.
