Editor's note: This article was expanded and updated in November 2017. Most organizations depend on voice and data communications, and also have LANs and WANs. With such a critical and strategic investment in networking, how you do protect those valuable investments from unplanned disruptions due to carrier problems or equipment malfunctions? And how do you know your network infrastructure is secure and protected from unauthorized access, viruses or attacks by hackers?
Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning are critical activities for organizations of any size, whether it's a large enterprise or a small- to medium-sized business (SMB). An important starting point in business continuity planning is the creation of a business continuity policy. A business continuity policy can help your organization recover from a disaster faster and get your systems up and running smoothly, rather than addressing problems only after a crisis strikes.
You probably aren't surprised to hear cloud storage adoption is steadily increasing, but there's a good chance...that it's growing faster than you expected. According to a 2017 study of senior business executives by Teradata, more than half of business-critical data will find a home in cloud storage by 2019, including 56% of IT, 53% customer and 51% financial data.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
