Disaster Preparedness for Small Business Owners

Oz Hill and Jim Satterfield, Firestorm
This webinar topic isn't meant to scare you. It's not meant to make you feel guilty either. But, it is meant to help you--by forcing you to think about your important business assets and a recovery plan.

Disaster is an ugly word. It's not something that you think about everyday. It's something you read about or hear about in the news that affects someone else. But you should think about it--and you should be concerned if you don't have a contingency plan for business-as-usual operations after a catastrophic event.

Especially in the past couple of years, Americans have been exposed to increasing national disasters, including floods, tornados, hurricanes and wildfires. And that doesn't begin to speak to fires, break-ins and robberies, etc.

The question is "could your business survive any of these types of events"?

Recent University of Texas research suggests that only 6% of companies could survive a catastrophic data loss, and that 43% would never re-open, and of those that do re-open--51% would be forced to close within 2 years. Plus, Gartner Research estimates that only 35% of America's small/medium businesses have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place.

We thought this would be a good time to introduce your small business to some very nice and very knowledgeable guys from a company called Firestorm. Founded in 2005, Firestorm is working hard to protect and to serve small businesses, like yours! During this webinar, Firestorm will provide you with tools and information you'll need to begin preparing your business--should any type of disaster strike in your area.

The best way that you can help your business today is to be prepared for whatever tomorrow may bring. This is your chance to learn how you can protect all of your company's assets--and an opportunity to ask our panel of experts about your individual concerns.
