Counting the Cost: Are You Prepared for a Business Interruption?

The Business Continuity Institute has announced that this year's Business Continuity Awareness Week will be March 17-21, and the theme is "Counting the Cost."

We've touched on a few examples of how much disasters can cost businesses (remember Pixar's nightmare and South Park's first missed deadline?), but this month we'll go more in-depth about how to prevent those expenses and prepare for workplace disasters.

We'll be posting a series of blogs that demonstrate the costs of not having a BC/DR plan and cover topics such as DR technology trends, investing in compliance and cloud-based solutions.

Check back in with us throughout the next few weeks to count the cost of being ill-prepared. In the meantime, we're going to kick off the month with this infographic that shows which natural disasters are the most economically destructive.
