Contribute to the 2018 State of Business Continuity Report
- Jan 18, 2018
In 2018, business continuity professionals have a lot to worry about. As we move farther into the 21st century, organizational threats are changing and adapting faster than a lightning strike. Cyber-attacks, terrorist activities, and even severe weather are all ready to increase your business’ financial, operational, and human risk. That’s why it’s critical to know where your organization stands and how well you are prepared for everything that’s out there.
Business Continuity and Severe Weather
Business Continuity and severe weather simply don’t mix. We don’t need to tell you that dangerous weather conditions are a threat not only to human livelihood but to business operations as well. Just as quickly as a lightning strike can turn an outdoor sports practice into a mine field it can also detonate an entire business’ operations. Think about it: If you lose power, for instance, you can kiss your profits and operations goodbye.
And the problem doesn’t stop at lightning. There are a wide variety of weather conditions that threaten the vitality of a thriving business or organization. Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires are some of the most publicized natural risks to organizations around the globe. Not to mention, even more common severe weather events are threatening as well. Hail, for example, can severely damage a transportation company’s vehicles while high winds can not only tear down an energy provider’s power lines but put line workers at risk as well.
