The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1st, and since we have already witnessed devastating effects from one tropical storm, it would appear that the Gulf coast is very overdue for an active season. In fact, the United States Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released details regarding what they believe will be an extremely active season. According to their research, there is a 70% likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms this hurricane season, with three to six having the potential of becoming a Category 3 or higher. With these frightening numbers, how are you preparing your company’s IT infrastructure for the storms ahead?
In order to ensure your IT operation continues to run smoothly even during the worst weather, it is highly recommended that your company creates and tests a detailed disaster recovery and business continuity plan.
