HAVE A PLAN - Make sure your business is prepared to run despite loss of power, computers, people or access to your office. If your company depends on data, make sure it is placed in a secure, redundant Data Center facility.
BACK UP - Back up your critical data using an off-site backup service. If this is not in your budget, create a copy of your data on a jump drive or external hard drive, place this drive in a sealed plastic bag, and store it out of harm's way. Be sure to back up and restore your data frequently!
LOAD - Load your business critical contacts into your cell phone or PDA. It is also a good idea to print them and store them in a sealed plastic bag.
KNOW YOUR PASSWORDS - Many people rely on their PC to remember their usernames and passwords. Make sure to memorize or record all critical passwords - including the password to access your e-mail through webmail.
SECURE THE OFFICE - Before leaving, be sure to have all of your computers password-protected. This will help keep unwanted visitors from accessing your data.
USE A UPS - Storm or no storm, you should plug your computer and monitor into a UPS to guard against electricity strikes and potential loss of power. A UPS can give you enough time to properly shut down your PC when a storm threatens.
UNPLUG - Unplug your servers, computers, and other gadgets and move them from the floor and away from the windows.
TAKE A PICTURE - Take a picture of your servers and computers BEFORE the storm hits. This will help if an insurance claim is necessary.
