Prior Planning can Prevent Disaster
by Warren Martin, Founder on December 28th, 2017

‚ÄčHow many of you business leaders out there ever discuss, let alone have, a disaster recovery plan? My experience tells me that very few is the correct answer. Have you ever considered what would happen to your business if fire, flood, hurricane, or tornado destroyed the facility. What would you do if your major supplier suddenly was unable to serve your needs? Every business should prepare for the worst and pray for the best. A good disaster recovery plan should enable your business to be back serving customers with no more than a day or two interruption. One designated person to talk to media, an offsite location for IT data back-up, back-up locations/businesses prepared to produce your product/service. Secondary suppliers ready to be turned on in case your primary supplier is down. Discuss this with your team and develop a step by step plan in case the worst happens. If it does, your customers, shareholders, and employees will be grateful that you did.
