Recent studies by the Department of Homeland Security confirm that businesses that reopen within days of a major disaster are up to four times more likely to resume normal operations, even thrive. Businesses that fail to reopen quickly often fail altogether.
With this in mind, more businesses are implementing disaster continuity plans now, to avoid being caught off guard by Mother Nature. Disaster continuity plans are detailed guidebooks for keeping critical business operations up and running through disasters large and small. Getting started on your plan is easy.
Expect the best. Plan for the worst.
The difference between sinking and succeeding post disaster is usually the direct result of a business’s disaster continuity plan. Power, technology, space and connectivity are the four main needs for businesses to resume operations. With these resources in place, you continue doing business despite setbacks.
