PORTSMOUTH – The recent snow storms in the Northeast should serve as a reminder that Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with.

And while severe weather can cause serious damage to physical property, it’s just as dangerous to digital property. That’s why measures should be taken to protect both. Since 1997 Jenaly Technology Group, Inc., has helped individuals and businesses with the latter.

MJ Shoer, the company’s president and virtual chief technology officer, says changing weather patterns are becoming more unpredictable and more severe. Companies and individuals need to prepare for these kinds of emergencies with plans for two things: disaster recovery and business continuity.

“It’s almost irresponsible not to have a plan in place,” Shoer said.

Shoer will be one of the speakers during a seminar on how climate change can impact business being sponsored by the Green Alliance, with which Jenaly is a Business Partner, on March 12. Other speakers include Marsha Haines of the American Red Cross and Roger Stephenson of the NH Coastal Adaptation Workgroup.
