The Top 5 Risks for Business Disasters in America
Tuesday, July 14, 2015 from 2PM to 3:00PM ET
Every organization struggles with how to best prepare themselves for disasters. How to start? Where to begin? What threats are the greatest?
Join the SBA and Co-Sponsor Agility Recovery as we explore the top risks to businesses in America. Though 2014 was a relatively quiet year for large scale disasters in the US, some of the greatest threats are posed by smaller incidents causing an interruption. The statistics are overwhelming: according to the Red Cross, 40% percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster. And with small to medium-sized businesses being the lifeblood of the American economy, we must protect our operations. Your organization is more than just a place of business to your customers, employees and stakeholders. It is a key aspect of their lives, and one that must be protected.
Topics covered will include:
- The top 5 causes of business interruptions from 2014
- Best practices for mitigating theses risks
- Lessons learned from those that endured the worst case scenarios
