Could a disaster put you out of business?
Disasters happen all around us and come in many forms! We are all familiar with the “usual” disasters: hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, fires, workplace violence and more. But it’s the ones we don’t think about, the unexpected and protracted power and/or communication disruptions and other unimaginable things that could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Is your business prepared to withstand a disruption of any type of hours, days, possibly even weeks?
“I have great insurance…so I’m covered,” might make you feel that you’re ready to respond to any disaster…but in fact, simply planning for that insurance recovery check, is not a good plan.
Business owners must not take for granted that all will be okay. During this webinar, you’ll discover important components of a disaster and business continuity planning that will help you stay in business—no matter what comes your way!
Learn key techniques in planning, preparedness and recovery that will allow you a better chance of recovering critical business functions.
Gain valuable real-life lessons and “the inside scoop” from a disaster recovery expert of nearly 30 years.
Invest a little time now for this informative meeting that will save you a lot of time, effort, aggravation and lost income later on.
