Five questions every SMB Needs to answer to avoid a breakdown on the road to success

by Ildi Pomeroy

When you’re on the road to success, everything happens pretty fast. Most decisions are made on the fly, and most roadblocks are dealt with as they appear. After all—who has time to worry about problems that haven’t happened yet?

But there is one major bump in the road that every small business should be able to see coming from miles away. Unfortunately, most are in denial about it. That’s data loss. Don’t think you need to worry about that right now? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do we store sensitive data on laptops, smart phones, and tablets?
  • Do we routinely back up ALL our data, including files stored on personal devices?
  • Do we use public cloud platforms to share and store data that’s critical to the success of the business?
  • Do we handle sensitive information that may be subject to data privacy laws?
  • How long would it take us to recover, if we lost all of our sales presentations, contracts, customer records, and employee files?

If the answers to these questions are making you feel a bit queasy, don’t worry.
