Over the last decade, the frequency and devastating strength of hurricanes has increased dramatically. The biggest, most destructive storms—like Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Sandy—cost billions in residential and commercial property damage. In fact, when you combine the damage costs from the hurricanes in 2012 and 2017, it amounts to $273.2 billion. And according to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety, 25 percent of businesses that close after a natural disaster never reopen.
No business can afford that. Yet, according to Forrester, only 37 percent feel prepared for disaster recovery.
Every business, regardless of size or industry, should have a Business Continuity plan in place. Being prepared with the right plan can help return a sense of order and normalcy during a chaotic time. Hurricane season lasts from June to November, which makes now the perfect time to evaluate your current systems and start organizing your approach. Once you get an idea of where your network could be improved to help you recover, you can find a solution that fits.
