It’s that time of year for backyard BBQs, beach trips, World Cup soccer and … hurricane season. Hurricane, cyclone, typhoon–whatever you call it–the hurricane season is off to a good start. And if you are in the potential path of the storm, it’s best to be prepared in advance with disaster recovery and business continuity plans that address hurricane preparedness. Read on and attend our on-demand webinar to get best practices from our team at Citrix – an IT team that has handled Florida hurricanes for 25 years.
Our production data center is located in Miami so we watch the weather forecast carefully. We’ve often had to activate our plan, multiple times the same year. As a key part of this, we send an advance team to our disaster recovery back-up site near Atlanta to prepare for failover. This team helps us recover our critical systems so we can continue to service our global operations seamlessly. For our employees in the path of a storm, we offer assistance as their safety and protection is our priority–and remote access using our own Citrix technology for those who are available to work.
I want to invite you to join John Lugo, Senior Business Continuity Analyst as he presents preparing for hurricane season. John, under the leadership of Stan Black, Citrix Chief Security Officer, handles the company’s business continuity planning and activations. Watch the on-demand webinar anytime:
John will share his proven 5 step plan for successful hurricane preparedness:
