After the Crash: Minimize your Downtime

Thursday, February 25, 2:00pm EST.

Computers crash, viruses infect, and disasters happen. But they don't have to affect your ability to continue working if you're prepared. There are some key things you should know about your computer system and your applications - and things you should do with your data - to ensure that you're back up in a few hours instead of a few days.

Kami Griffiths will interview Laura Richardson from Uptime Resources to help you understand how you can get your system back up and running so your staff can continue to do their work as quickly as possible. The discussion will open your eyes to the risks you should be aware of and to the measures that can help prevent data loss.

What will happen to your TechSoup software product donations in case of a crash? Gregory Seeley, a TechSoup Stock Customer Service Representative, will give an overview of how you can regain access to the products and services you requested before the incident.

This webinar is appropriate for executive directors, IT staff, accidental techies, and anyone else who is responsible for maintaining your nonprofit or library's computers and data.
