How Natural Disasters Impact Businesses

Guest Author

Business owners can spend many sleepless nights worrying about the myriad disasters that can strike their companies. Will there be a labor dispute? Will the server go down tomorrow? Is an employee going to say something stupid on social media? In any case, being prepared and having a plan for these disasters is key to weathering the storm for any business. However, there’s one type of disaster that shockingly few businesses seem to have detailed plans to deal with, and it’s pretty obvious when you think about it. Many businesses only think about natural disasters in the context of how they’ll get their employees to safety in the moment, but they don’t consider all of the lasting impacts those disasters can have on their ongoing operations.

We asked Nathan Sykes, an avid blogger about business and technology, for his view of how the automotive industry is utilizing mixed reality. Here is what he had to say:

Automotives and Mixed Reality

Augmented and virtual reality technologies are taking industries by storm, including retail, entertainment and even automotive. No doubt, you’ve heard of mobile games like Pokémon GO and virtual games played via platforms like PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR or Oculus Rift.

Bitcoin for Business

Guest Author

Being in the technology industry, we’re regularly asked all things tech and we’ve had a lot of questions concerning Bitcoin lately. We reached out to our local Bitcoin advocate Raina Casbon-Kelts to learn more about what Bitcoin is and why businesses would be interested in it.

Raina writes:

While Americans had Cyber Monday last week where online retailers threw out their best deals, the steadily growing global Cryptocurrency community celebrated Crypto Monday!

Bitcoin is a Global Digital Currency invented by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. The intention of Bitcoin is the decentralization of money, returning person-to-person transactions to the world and eliminating the middle men like Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and even banks.

Ask a Cyber-Risk Insurance Agent

Guest Author

After our post, Do I Need Cyber Insurance [For My Business], we received notes from clients and friends thanking us for bringing this to their attention. We also got a lot of questions. We asked insurance agents in the New Orleans area that we knew specialized in cyber risk insurance to help educate all of us. Bradley Nolan with Donnaway Insurance graciously agreed to do an interview with us about the topic.

My IT - How has the cyber-risk insurance market changed in the past 3-5 years?

BN - Many new insurers entered the market recently. Previously, the market had a handful of traditional carriers with over a decade of underwriting & claims experience. Now with new insurers playing in the market, there are untested policy contracts due to them having little experience dealing with cyber and data losses. These companies that are new to the sector do not have the claims support infrastructure and technology vendor network to investigate and assess claims immediately so their pricing, underwriting coverage, and claim response is largely unknown.

Can Technology Make Us More Profitable?

Guest Author

Guest post by Neel Sus, CEO & founder of Susco, a business solutions-focused web and mobile app development firm.  

I get one question all the time from high-growth executives, “Can technology make us more profitable?"

Oftentimes, their companies already use systems for accounting and CRM (Customer Relationship Management), and they are not sure (1) what processes could be improved and (2) if there is a business case to improve them.  

Over the years, we've identified some very clear indicators for when it's time to invest in technology to improve processes (and your bottom line); some indicators are so obvious it hurts because you’ll wish you thought of it earlier while other are subtle. Either way, if you see these indicators in your business, I recommend talking with someone to review the ROI of implementing a potential change.
