Business Continuity Requires Disaster Recovery Planning

Many companies don’t recognize that unprotected software and data can be a significant threat to their future.

Because fracking is more costly than conventional oil extraction, the current oil price collapse is closing down U.S. shale oil rigs. Experts predict that fracking will only “kick in” when oil prices are high
