When a business is hit by disaster—whether natural, like a storm, or man-made, like a cyber-attack—its survival can depend on how well it retrieves lost financial data and restores vital communications. And, there is now a program in the Youngstown area to help plan for such recovery.
Melissa Ames is the BBB’s Vice President of Services. She says the more that technology is integrated into business, the greater to the need to plan against what could go wrong.
“We are so reliant upon our devices," says Ames, "and this is planning for a disaster within our office."
"Maybe somebody accidently downloaded a virus to their work computer and it takes out your entire network. You have to be aware of what can happen; and plan for when something like this does happen.”
