Webinar on Business Continuity Lessons Learned in 2011's Natural Disasters

Event Date and Time: 
01/17/2012 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Natural disasters exacted a significant financial toll on the United States in 2011.  The Insurance Information Institute reports that insured losses from a series of disasters – which included devastating spring tornadoes in the Midwest, floods in the southeast, wildfires in the southwest, and Hurricane Irene – totaled $35.9 billion.

Small businesses were hit particularly hard as many were forced to close during these disasters, causing economic injury to many that were already struggling. The factors that cause financial losses after a disaster, however, can be offset by having a recovery plan in place.

On Tuesday, January 17, Agility Recovery Solutions and the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a free webinar that looks at how natural disasters in 2011 caused business interruptions, with a focus on business continuity lessons learned.  Agility President and CEO Bob Boyd will also discuss new trends and technology that affect disaster preparedness.  The webinar will also offer practical strategies to protect your company closing its doors for good after a disaster.

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies via its “PrepareMyBusiness” website.  Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars and get additional preparedness tips.  The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes.
