What Is A Disaster?

A disaster is any unplanned event that can shut down your business, disrupt operations, or threaten the facility’s financial standing or public image.  Planning for these events will significantly reduce recovery costs and down time. Of companies that had a major loss of computerized data or records, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% will survive long-term.  (Cummings, Haag & McCubbrey 2005.)

Examples of Disasters

  • Natural disasters
  • Fire
  • Equipment theft
  • Employee Sabotage
  • Terrorist attacks
