The Importance of Disaster Planning for Businesses
Generally, when we talk about business disaster preparedness, most of the time we discuss the potential damage future events will have on buildings, equipment, staff, and other business assets and operations. Evaluating what may happen and the impact on future business is an exercise in risk management. It requires a significant time commitment, but the payback in terms of benefits to the business are clear and valuable.
Perhaps even more important than identifying risks is the planning process that follows which outlines how your organization will respond to possible disruptive events.
