Don’t Let Sinkholes Bring Your Business Crashing Down

By June 10, 2016Blog, News


As I’m sure most of you have seen, Ottawa’s downtown area businesses have experienced a decline in productivity these past few days after a giant sinkhole has left Rideau Street torn apart.

Fortunately, with the only casualty being an empty van, the sinkhole hasn’t caused any injuries.

Businesses in the area, including the Rideau Centre mall, have been temporarily closed due to safety. And, while many have been worried about missing the 2 for 1 deals at the Rideau Centre, I have been thinking about the consequences that a disaster like this can have on businesses affected by a disaster that affects its IT infrastructure.

Whether it’s a natural or accidental (or intentional) disaster, any business can unexpectedly find itself in a situation that negatively affects business continuity.

Would your business be able to cope with its physical location being closed for an unknown amount of time?

Would it be able to overcome IT equipment or data damage?

Would you have the support you need to get back on your feet?
