Disaster can strike at any time - make sure
your business is prepared.

Common disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, and hurricanes can halt your business operations. According to the Insurance Information Institute, up to 40% of businesses forced to suspend operations due to a disaster never reopen their doors. For this reason, it is critical to make a plan of action for recovery in the event of a disaster so you can resume normal business functions as quickly as possible.

Gather a planning team tasked with the development of a business continuity plan.

Some typical goals of a continuity planning team include:
  • Protecting employees, visitors, and contractors from any present hazards and preventing environmental contamination
  • Maintaining customer service by minimizing disruptions of business operations
  • Protecting facilities, physical assets, and electronic information
  • Protecting the brand, image, and reputation of your organization
