Building a disaster preparedness strategy?

In partnership with


Recently, risk modeling firm RMS estimated that Hurricane Ian, which hit Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia in September, could inflict insured losses on the private market. up to $74 billion. Further inland flooding and storm surges could result in additional losses of $10 billion. The worrying aspect is that this is not a stand-alone event. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the intensity of North Atlantic cyclones has “increased dramatically over the past 20 years, and eight of the 10 most active years since 1950 have occurred since the mid 1990s”.

Although businesses rely on insurance to cover losses caused by extreme events, they still have to rebuild everything from scratch, and in some cases the insurance coverage may not be sufficient. Therefore, in recent times, companies have started relying more on business continuity plans with disaster preparedness at their core for good reason.

According to Eaton, North American businesses lose $700 billion a year to downtime, with weather-related outages costing the economy between $18 billion and $33 billion a year. The average cost per minute of a data center outage also rose to $8,851, a 38% increase since 2010. Between 2000 and 2017, 19 weather-related network disruptions also affected more than one million customers.

Homemade disaster recovery plans don’t work

Organizations must have robust disaster recovery plans and protocols in place to protect their IT infrastructures against unforeseen and disruptive events. However, that is easier said than done. There are many reasons why organizations fall victim to disasters despite having plans in place. These may include a lack of coordination and communication from IT staff responsible for critical applications, databases and ERP systems, a lack of clearly defined roles and responsibilities, the absence contingency plans in test environments and an inability to accurately estimate the cost of downtime or the cost of recovery.

According to IDC’s white paper, “The State of Ransomware and Disaster Preparedness: 2022,” up to 93% of organizations experienced data-related business disruption in twelve months, forcing many challenge their existing backup and disaster recovery solutions. He also found that inadequate disaster recovery planning led to lost employee productivity, lost revenue, and higher recovery costs (see Figure 1 below). The IDC study, based on a survey of more than 500 respondents from medium and large enterprises in North America and Western Europe, found that following an outage event activity, only 28% of respondents expressed 100% confidence in their backup systems. ‘ to recover the data, and only 29% had 100% confidence in their DR solution to recover the data. As a result, 79% of these organizations have strong disaster recovery strategies in place to prevent further downtime.

Why you need reliable and expert partners to build resilient disaster preparedness strategies

Given the severe impact of unplanned events on business continuity, organizations of all sizes and representing different industries need to work closely with partners with the necessary disaster recovery expertise to get operations back up and running. in no time. Eaton suggests that investing in a disaster prevention application will allow business owners to proactively manage, monitor and determine corrective actions before power outages that can help reduce or avoid the cost of recovery. .

Here are a few reasons why working with a qualified first response service provider can help organizations be optimally prepared for unforeseen disaster scenarios:

  1. The service provider can identify critical areas of your business that need to be running at all times. This helps them develop a contract that covers insurance and training needs, the requirement for additional services in times of crisis, and to put in place the necessary equipment and manpower commensurate with the task at hand. .
  2. The first response service provider can conduct a pre-crisis risk mitigation audit to estimate the potential impact of credible disaster scenarios and identify ways to minimize vulnerability in the event of a disaster.
  3. The service provider may also perform a safety audit and, based on its findings, establish procedures to ensure injury-free repair.
  4. With its on-time disaster recovery expertise, the service provider can help organizations comply with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requirements.
  5. The service provider has expertise in the critical staging of support equipment, including generators, equipment and satellite communication networks. It can also assist in the recovery, life extension and/or replacement of equipment with full manufacturing capabilities, regardless of manufacturer.

The good news is that there are reliable and experienced players in the field who have the expertise to estimate the extent of exposure to extreme events and ensure business continuity.

Eaton’s disaster response services, for example, ensure companies have a recovery plan and the support needed to resume production quickly and safely. The company’s field technicians are seasoned experts who can help restore emergency power systems quickly and safely. Eaton’s expertise in implementing a proactive and comprehensive disaster response program will help it achieve its availability goals and avoid financial loss.

The company’s disaster response services provide organizations with a host of benefits, such as remote monitoring services, preventive maintenance and support services, UPS upgrades (kVA, power-saving system, firmware), Eaton replacement batteries, multi-vendor services (support for other manufacturers’ products), and factory-certified spare parts.

For example, Eaton’s Distributed Infrastructure Management (DIM) software, part of the company’s Brightlayer Data Centers suite, provides the tools needed to monitor and manage power devices in physical or virtual. This helps IT managers to remotely monitor, manage and control UPSs, PDUs, servers and other storage devices on the network. It also helps enterprises and SMBs preserve functionality of key assets by disabling them when a shutdown occurs across multiple operating systems.

Eaton’s best products that ensure business continuity and operational resilience

There are several other best-in-class products offered by Eaton that can help make IT infrastructures resilient to extreme weather events and other major disruption vectors. These are:

Surge Protectors: The Isobar® line of surge protectors from Tripp Lite by Eaton protect critical IT equipment with surge protection up to 5700 joules and provide robust EMI/RFI protection. They also offer data line protection, USB charging, metal casing, auto shut-off, and other key features.

They can be modernized and reconfigured to handle expansion, upgrades, virtualization/consolidation projects, increased power density, and new hotspots. Businesses can choose from a range of rack-mounted, portable or row-mounted units depending on their cooling needs.

While rack-mounted units work best in server rooms or data centers with one or two racks, as long as the power density stays below 2 kW per rack, portable units are ideal for cooling a small room. servers, up to five racks or one location. Row units are placed in a rack row, making them highly scalable, as organizations can choose to add as many units as they want based on their cooling needs.

UPS: Eaton offers rack-mount, wall-mount and tower-mount UPS units for a variety of use cases and to provide uninterruptible power to ensure that network closets and intermediate distribution frames (IDFs), which are critical components of IT networks, remain operational at all times.

PDUs: Having the right rackmount PDU can be an essential asset for any business to effectively manage their data center. Eaton offers advanced power distribution units in various form factors and for various use cases to ensure business continuity. While metered PDUs provide metering at the branch or outlet level, managed PDUs offer the more advanced features, such as outlet-level switching (i.e. you can switching it off and on remotely) and monitoring at the outlet.

Charging station and charging cart: Eaton offers charging stations or charging carts to allow businesses to operate their laptops/notebooks, Chromebooks and tablets at all times to ensure operational continuity and avoid interruptions caused by unforeseen events. These high-end charging stations can simultaneously power dozens of devices and are also useful from a cybersecurity perspective. Lockable charging stations protect devices while ensuring the security of sensitive and proprietary data stored on devices or accessed by devices when devices are charged or stored.

The TV industry’s most popular benchmark remains broken – at least for now.

Nielsen’s long-running national TV ratings have yet to regain industry support after the measurement giant asked to cancel a meeting due to take place on Monday where it was supposed to demonstrate its efforts to improve its ability to count viewers, according to a person familiar with the matter.

More Variety

Nielsen on Nov. 9 requested a postponement of a Nov. 14 meeting of the Media Rating Council’s audit committee, the person said. MRC, an industry watchdog, compels measurement organizations to meet standards on behalf of the media sector. Nielsen was to explain how it improved its technology that measures TV audiences. The MRC suspended its accreditation for Nielsen’s national ratings in September 2021, citing findings that showed Nielsen underestimated viewership numbers during the coronavirus pandemic due to shortcomings in monitoring its technology. A communication to television networks regarding the postponement of the committee meeting said that Nielsen had shown “material noncompliance,” this person said.

“It is deeply disappointing that someone has shared a confidential document that tells only one side of the story of our continued involvement on Nielsen’s national television service,” said David Gunzerath, senior vice president and director. partner of the MRC, in a press release sent. Saturday. “While it is true that the current suspension of MRC accreditation remains in place at this time, it is also true that we believe Nielsen has made meaningful progress on most of the issues that led to this suspension. , and the MRC continues to work actively with Nielsen on track to resolve the remaining issues so that a review of reinstating accreditation to the national television service can take place relatively soon.

A spokeswoman for Nielsen referred a question to the MRC. An MRC spokesperson was unable to say whether Nielsen had asked to postpone or cancel a Nov. 14 meeting or about communications between the MRC committee and its members. Nielsen’s suspension status has previously been reported by Ad Age.

The revelation of the canceled reunion is the latest salvo in a months-long tussle between the television networks and the company that has long compiled its viewership, and is the latest sign of the television industry’s desperate need to find a new source of measurement as its audiences light up for the digital territory. Television networks, eager to demonstrate to Madison Avenue that they still have influence over viewers who turn to streaming outlets, alleged in 2021 that Nielsen changed protocol during the coronavirus pandemic, resulting in an undercount of the television audience.

While Nielsen pledged to rectify the situation, the networks were not satisfied. Indeed, many of them started working with a list of newcomers to measurement, including iSpot, Comscore, and VideoAmp, and struck deals in the industry’s recent initial market that included benchmarks based on the conclusions of these companies. NBCUniversal said in June, for example, that more than 40% of its initial offers were based on things other than traditional age and gender metrics, up from about 20% last year.

Even with the suspension in place, Nielsen began making metering deals with a slew of the networks’ digital rivals. In recent weeks, Nielsen has unveiled pacts that allow it to keep tabs on Alphabet’s YouTube TV ratings; Netflix’s new ad-supported subscription tier; and “Thursday Night Football” from Amazon Prime Video. In March, Nielsen agreed to be taken into private ownership by a group led by Evergreen Coast Capital Corporation, a subsidiary of activist fund Elliott Investment Management LP, which pushed for a sale of Nielsen, and Brookfield Business Partners LP, in part of a deal that called for a $16 billion all-cash deal.

Just as Nielsen often clashes with his TV partners over viewership numbers, he’s found himself at odds with Amazon over how many people are watching the e-commerce giant’s new streaming version of Thursday’s Matches. NFL. Nielsen’s audience count is lower than the outlet’s — a tabulation difference that will have an effect on how much advertisers will be willing to pay to appear alongside the pigskin storefront.

With over 30 years of experience delivering resilient industrial technology solutions, Madison Technologies knows many of the challenges facing the industrial sector as it embraces digital transformation.

The buzz around data is intensifying every day. By the time you finish reading this article, it is estimated that 16 billion connected IoT devices worldwide will be transmitting over 300 trillion bytes of data.

All of this data has the power to create value through better understanding – providing analytics and insights that can drive lasting change and positive impact for all organizations. However, before data can be used to better understand and manage resources, improve safety and increase efficiency, it must be collected.

For industrial operating environments, data collection begins at the sensing and edge layer, where the initial data acquisition takes place. As technological improvements are made, the sources of data we can measure continue to grow. In 2022, almost anything can be measured, and data sensors can be placed (almost) anywhere.

Once the data is captured, it must be transferred through a connectivity layer to an on-premises or cloud platform. This can be done through traditional wired communication networks or wireless communications.

When high availability and reliability of critical applications are required, network redundancy or mesh networks allow constant connectivity of static or mobile assets, so that they remain connected to the network. Finally, private and mobile network communications enable connectivity in remote and hard-to-reach areas.

For some processes, real-time decision-making is needed, and advances in edge computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence mean that data can be captured, processed, and turned into action at any time. physical location where they are created or nearby.

Without the need to transfer data to the on-premises or cloud platform, this real-time data analysis reduces the time to get insights from minutes to microseconds, enabling decision making. fast for solutions such as intelligent traffic control systems.

For processes that do not require real-time decision making, the transferred data is now ready to be presented to a platform or application for analysis, visualization and contextualization. It is at this level that the hidden value in the data collection can begin to be unlocked.

It may be to identify a process that needs attention or improvement, to clarify the factors that influence human behavior, to provide insight to anticipate a future condition, or to identify the main sources of a problem that needs to be determined.

The final step in this process is to mobilize and present the data to operational stakeholders across an organization, so that informed decision-making can take place. Armed with this data, organizations can now identify trends and influence change.

Throughout this process, consideration must be given to cybersecurity and the need to secure data. Preventing manipulation of data so that it is reliable enables more accurate data-driven decision making.

Cybersecurity technologies designed specifically for industrial environments, in accordance with IEC 62443 cybersecurity requirements, can proactively identify and mitigate cyber threats in IT/OT environments and ensure business continuity.

Consider how data is currently collected in your operations. Is it set up to be insightful, secure, and is the right data going to the right people?

When iMessage launched with iOS 5, it was truly an awesome deployment design from Apple. There was no registration, it was automatic. There was no app to download – it was integrated with the SMS/messages app. There was no user interface to learn. It worked like your normal messaging app. Apple has done a good job of evolving the service. It’s no longer the only messaging app on the market, and I think Apple has an opportunity to turn iMessage into a professional chat tool if it expands it outside of the Apple ecosystem. Let’s see how Apple could create an iMessage@Work tool to compete with Slack and Microsoft Teams.

About Apple@Work: Bradley Chambers managed a corporate IT network from 2009 to 2021. With his experience deploying and managing firewalls, switches, mobile device management system, Wi- Fi enterprise, hundreds of Macs and hundreds of iPads, Bradley will highlight the ways Apple IT managers deploy Apple devices, build networks to support them, train users, stories from the trenches of IT management and ways Apple could improve its products for IT services.


iMessage for business

Apple has done some of the leg work here by creating an iMessage for business communication tool. Apple Messages for Business is a service your business can use to communicate directly with customers using the Messages app. You can use the power of iMessage to solve problems, schedule appointments, make purchases or make payments with Apple Pay. Businesses can choose to use a messaging service provider (MSP) to handle customer requests through Messages for Business. Depending on the email setup you configure, your customers can start a conversation with your business through different entry points such as websites, apps, and email. Customers can connect with your business in Apple Maps or by tapping your phone number in the app.

If you’ve used Apple Messages for Business as a customer, you know it’s a straightforward experience. Customers like to chat for help like they do with their friends; they love seamless sharing from iOS and macOS. iMessage is ultimately a simplified chat app, and I think that’s ultimately what businesses need today.

I think it’s time for Apple to roll out an iMessage@Work tool that could be used instead of Slack or Microsoft Teams. Companies like Spike and Twobird are pioneering this approach with a messaging app that looks like a chat/messaging app.

If you’ve never tried Spike or Twobird, I highly recommend that you at least download it and sign in with your email account. It’s a revolutionary way to use email. This really highlights what Apple could do with a version of iMessage designed for cross-platform work. I think the most important feature of iMessage@Work would be the ability for users to customize their own workspace. Each user can create a personalized profile picture and display name, as well as create a list of contacts they consider important to their business, then organize them into different groups and projects. These rooms could be used as project management tools, allowing users to collaborate on a particular task or project with others in their group. This would make it easier to share files, discuss a project, etc.

Built-in FaceTime

In May 2020, I explained why FaceTime didn’t have its Zoom moment during the COVID lockdowns. I mentioned this lack of access for FaceTime on non-Apple platforms. Apple has since rectified that with the ability to join FaceTime calls from other platforms, but I think the secret sauce would be the ability to switch from chatting with work to a quick FaceTime call similar to how Slack enables Huddles. Spike also lets you quickly switch between chat and calls.

Cross-platform

For iMessage@Work to take off, Apple needs to expand it to Android, PC, and the web. Currently, iMessage is only available on iOS and macOS. Tim Cook recently dismissed the need for RCS for iPhone. I believe the wrong question was asked, however. iMessage is a great platform and Apple has the opportunity to expand into business services with an iMessage@Work subscription. Apple may charge a per-user subscription fee related to Managed Apple IDs and user registration. Employees using Apple devices could have a secondary iMessage instance for their work communication while Android and PC users could log in with their Managed Apple ID to chat with co-workers.

Recap on iMessage@Work

iMessage@Work is less about getting the consumer version of iMessage working on Android and Windows. It’s more about creating a company-specific version of iMessage that works across multiple platforms. Apple is focused on growing its service revenue, and iMessage@Work would be an opportunity to do just that.

We currently find ourselves in an uncertain market where a large number of companies are looking to raise capital as they seek to survive in the current environment.

Although there are capitals on the sidelines, they are more selective about the opportunities they pursue. While some groups are in the business of allocating capital, others are focused on adding value to the companies they invest in, not only providing capital but taking the time to offer their expertise and finding ways to leverage relationships or other skills that can benefit the business. Meanwhile, founders work hard to make their companies shine and stand out to attract a well-rounded investor base.

Once a company has engaged with strategic investors, what distinguishes those who succeed from those who struggle? What is the best way for a founder to make the most of this opportunity and get the best result?

Contrary to what many young founders may think, the answer is not the tired “fake it ’til you make it!” maxim. As someone with decades of experience in private equity and venture capital investing, the number one piece of advice I would give to all businesses is to have open, honest, two-way communication with investors. .

It can seem especially difficult when a business encounters obstacles. Especially in today’s market, founders face a variety of different challenges, and a natural response is to try to sugarcoat or hide these issues while a company works to overcome them. In short, many founders mistakenly view admitting problems as a sign of weakness.

The reality is that investors not only know there will be challenges for any growing business, they fully expect them. Often things don’t go as planned, and acknowledging challenges and being willing to discuss them is a clear sign of strength in a leader.

In fact, since hills and valleys are an integral part of growing any business, it can be worrying for an investor to hear nothing but good news. Investor-founder relationships thrive on candor and transparency – open discussions about how a company approaches challenges and is receptive to advice and guidance.

This last part is essential. Along with falling into the trap of thinking that all news has to be good news, another trap founders fall into is believing they always have to be the smartest person in the room. Investors love innovative, forward-thinking founders who seek creative ways to solve problems, but we also love working with leaders who are eager to tap into the experience and perspective we have to offer.

In my role, we look for companies that are actively working to solve problems. Once we identify the right company, we never expect them to go it alone. Our goal is to work with them to identify the challenges that prevent them from moving to the next level.

The purpose of establishing these issues is not to pass judgment on them; it’s about having open discussions and offering expertise to circumvent or overcome them. As an investor, we are always fully aligned with the founder with the aim of achieving the best possible result.

We have a virtual treasure trove of resources – leaders with expertise in relevant areas, experience supporting founders who have faced similar challenges, and relationships we can draw on to find solutions. In fact, founders should insist on working with investors who have more than money to offer; equally valuable is the use of the unique skills and networks an investor brings to the table.

This is a very good time to be a founder. Once you’ve found the right investor, work hard to build a solid relationship with them. By working together in an open, honest, and receptive way to new ideas, you can celebrate shared success.
