Business Continuity Planning: Why Every Business Should Have a Recovery Plan

Blue Paper

Business continuity may not be at the top of every small business owner’s list of priorities, but with the sheer variety and abundance of natural disasters, it should be. Fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters strike all regions of the United States, with calamitous effects both on the local population and on businesses that support and thrive within those communities.

Yet, a 2013 Small Business Disaster Survey reports that 74 percent of small business owners have no disaster recovery plan in place.

There’s no way to prevent most of these disasters from occurring, but business owners can prepare for the worst. Continuity planning is an essential element for any kind of disaster preparedness activities.
