4 Steps for Small Businesses in a Disaster:
Small businesses around the country have been re-evaluating their disaster preparedness in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which hit New York late last month. At insureon, we recommend that small businesses use the following four steps as a starting plan for successful disaster preparation:
2) Implement risk transfer strategy – purchase the proper insurance policy/policies to cost effectively cover all your areas of risk.
3) Take preventative disaster action – before the event, put in place redundant technology, power, telephony, and workflow management strategies to minimize impact.
4) Create and execute business re-launch plan – after the event, speed is critical; execute pre-established re-launch plan around people, property, and client elements.
