OT is industrial level control systems that are typically outside of the IT realm.

Please Don’t Interrupt Me While I’m Interrupting

Posted by Dan Sanderson on Mar 30, 2021 1:48:04 PM

“Effective listening is more than simply avoiding the bad habit of interrupting others while they are speaking or finishing their sentences. It's being content to listen to the entire thought of someone rather than waiting impatiently for your chance to respond.”

Modern Approach to Business Continuity Planning

Posted by Dan Sanderson on Jun 17, 2020 3:30:23 PM

Business Continuity Planning

It has been an interesting last few months. A common theme that we are seeing with our clients is that the Covid-19 pandemic has made business owners really scrutinize business continuity.  Some were caught without any pandemic plan.  Others had the plan, but it was outdated.  A select few had a good plan in place and are now on the recovery quicker than most other businesses.

We’re taking a modern approach to Business Continuity Planning. Our strategic businesses leaders and engineers have vetted out a solution to help our clients streamline their Business Continuity Planning.
