As headlines shout about Hurricane Florence approaching the East Coast, with Helene and Isaac also stirring in the Atlantic Ocean, it is as good a time as any to discuss preparing your business for storms and any adverse weather effects that could negatively influence your business. Preparing your business for events like these is key to its survival, making it crucial that you know what your responsibilities are when awaiting a potentially devastating event such as a hurricane or a monsoon.

Often those products are connected to networks without the support of a vigilant Phoenix network administrator. These connections to Wi-Fi could unintentionally be putting networks at risk of malicious imposters.
