So, as you ready your onsite office implementation plan, consider the following.
- When was the last time my IT Department updates our technology fleet?
- If my business lost power, what is our plan for recovering data and continuing operations?
- Has my business been using enterprise software?
- What is my business doing to provide proper internet security?
- Does my business rent server space or do we properly maintain it on-site?
