Continuity Solutions for Businesses in North America
Companies that are proactive and not reactive when it comes to disaster are usually the first to get back to business, while businesses without a strategy often take much longer to recover, if they do at all. A business continuity plan can maximize your company’s chance of a successful recovery. By detailing how to get back to business as quickly as possible, you avoid stressful and hasty decisions at the time of the disaster.
What Risks Do North American Businesses Face?
North America is susceptible to a multitude of disasters like Hurricane Harvey, the Mexico City Earthquake (the one on 9/19/17), and the Northeast Blackout of 2003. The United States is most prone to adverse weather like tornadoes in the Midwest, hurricanes along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, as well as mud slides, forest fires, and flooding in the West and Northwest regions of the country. Canada is also at risk for natural disasters like wildfires and flooding. Due to North America’s susceptibility to these business disruptors, as well as others, it is pivotal companies plan for the worst with business continuity services. Don’t wait until disaster strikes to be reactive. Instead, be proactive with a business continuity plan.
According to the American Red Cross, 40% of small businesses do not reopen after a natural disaster (i.e. hurricane flood, tornado, earthquake, mudslide, wildfire, etc.). These businesses are usually unprepared for a disaster and had no backup plan or resilient operations in place. Think work area recovery, hardware recovery, even alternate sites for work. Even large businesses and corporations are susceptible to downtime.
The National Archives and Records Administration report that more than 90% of companies that experience at least seven days of data center downtime close shop and go out of business within one year. While a business continuity plan will not prevent natural disasters or cyber attacks from occurring, it will protect your data and minimize downtime for your company. Don’t become another statistic and instead, continue your business operations with an official business continuity plan that fits your company’s wants and needs.
