Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

Summer is now in full swing, which means storms can appear quickly that can put you in danger. Also, seasonal construction and heat can affect the power grid that supplies electricity to your office.
I mention this as a reminder of how fast storms can erupt and how things can change your normal schedule. It is important to make sure you’re prepared for unexpected events. Do you have a safe place to retreat to in a hurry when things get dangerous? Does everyone in your organization know how to recognize when to act? Is all your important information backed up and stored off-site? Even if your data is stored in the cloud, you should still occasionally back it up to a local storage device. Do you have a disaster recovery plan in case it is needed? I certainly hope you never have to deal with a serious emergency, but it is always a good idea to have a plan.
A general rule-of-thumb for data is: Anytime you’ve entered enough information that you don’t want to enter it again, make a backup.
