Event description

I know we are all busy, right? Who has time to plan for “disasters” that probably won’t happen? It won’t happen to me! There is nothing I can do anyway, so I might as well do nothing?

“Data disasters” happen more than you might think; in fact an AMI survey in 2009 found that 70% of small business had some data loss that year… so it really is not if, but when your business will lose data.

While natural disasters, flooding, and fires are rare they do happen; are you ready to write off your businesses and your livelihood if it does?

This event is for you, please comment below with specific questions or issues you'd like discussed and I will address as many as possible.

Attendees can expect to...

Walk away with a foundation for a disaster recovery plan… it sounds scary, but I’ll help you get prepared for the most likely events so you aren’t caught with your guard down.

Top reasons you should attend...

1 – You’d like simple advice on how to overcome business interruptions, technology related or otherwise.

2 – If you are unsure of your backup strategy or plan. Is everything you need really backed up? Are you backing up off-site?

3 – What is all this cloud computing and cloud backup stuff I hear about? Is it for me?

4 – I have no backup – Yikes!

5 – I think I’m good, but I’d like to be sure.

The speaker will share...

Some simple things you can to do this week to improve your recoverability.

    Hi Jesica -

    Glad to see you will be attending! Would you post a comment on what you are most interested in learning at this event? I'll try to make sure your needs are covered.

    Also, it will help if you can share how many computers your business uses and if you use any special computing equipment (servers, wireless network access, specialized accounting software, etc.). Feel free to message those details to me directly if you'd rather not disclose them in public here.

    Looking forward to meeting you!

    Thanks Nick! I'm really looking forward to it. Our data is so critical, especially as we're trying to reduce paper. Our data storage and backup was easier when it was just me, but as we're growing I'm really struggling to make sure data is accessible, secure, and backed up. I'll message you specifics :) I look forward to meeting you!

    Hi Mark -

    Any specific challenge you are facing that you'd like me to discuss tomorrow? Looks like a real small group, so we can basically just have a round table discussion.

    Hi Nick, I just wanted to learn more about you and your services. Also, your take on best practices for SMBs. DR planning is such a broad topic that I am looking forward to this. I will have a lot more questions tomorrow. Thanks.
