Plan Your IT for the Christmas Holidays
Over the Christmas holiday break, the last thing you want to be doing is putting out IT fires in your business.
Additionally, IT issues can take longer than normal to resolve with many IT technicians away.
Some tips on how to plan your IT strategy for the coming Christmas New Year period, so you can sit back and relax and have a stress-free holiday.
This time of year is renowned for cyber-attacks and natural disasters like bush fires and floods.
Your critical business data, systems, desktops, servers, and your entire infrastructure must be protected and recoverable.
While the type of disaster varies, the impact is the same: data and operational downtime which is truly disastrous for any business or organisation.
Think Technology Australia’s business continuity solutions will give you the best peace of mind over the holiday period.
Update Your Software
It is important to keep on top of your current software and data safety. Updating your software is crucial to the stability and security of your IT. Updating software sooner rather than later – particularly if the software you use contains sensitive data should be a priority.
It’s easy enough if your data is managed through a cloud-based system. We can provide different solutions specifically designed to suit your individual business requirements.
Using Public Wi-Fi for Business
Checking your business email using public Wi-Fi over the holidays can seem harmless, but it’s not. Your personal information and confidential business data can be left vulnerable. If you or your employees will be working remotely over the break, protect your company’s data with a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Reflect on our IT strategy
Think about where the digital side of your business is going next year. Are you planning any infrastructure upgrades, or are there major trends in your industry towards digitisation?
Keep your business agile and consider how your IT can best support your business plans for 2019.
