Floods can come as a result of hurricane or rainstorms, and are often hard to predict if and when a flood will occur. Floods can cause significant damage to hardware if water gets into the electronics. Therefore, it’s best to have a checklist that employees and management can refer to in the event of a flood.
❏ Backup Frequently Make sure you have an automatic, scheduled backup of all your data. We recommend backing up to an off-site location.
❏ Map Out Your IT Create a rough blueprint of where your servers, cables, workstations, and other hardware are in your office. List all the technologies in your office.
❏ Map Out Escape Routes Paths to each exit must always be clear and clearly marked.
❏ Inform your employees & staff Email your staff or address it in your weekly meetings on what to do in the event of a flood. It's better to be prepared than not prepared when it's too late.
❏ Update Employees & Staff Email your employees with updates. Use social media if necessary.
❏ Contact MSP Give your managed service provider a call and inform them of the incident. They will be able to give you more direction with next steps.
