It was a beautiful sunny day in Christchurch, New Zealand on Tuesday, the 22nd of February 2011 when out of nowhere, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake hit.
Disaster Can Strike Anytime
Unfortunately, we're faced with these horrible disasters when we least expect it. As a team, we can help prepare and prevent these devastating effects that these disasters caused the community.
Not only is it the everyday person affected by this, but businesses are as well. Being prepared for this type of disaster in business could be the difference between "Bye bye, hard work." and "Phew! Luckily, we're prepared!" In my experience, not all businesses are prepared when it comes to a disaster.
I'd like you, guys, to let us know: do you have a business continuity plan and disaster recovery plan or do you know what type of plan you may need for your business?

What should a business continuity and disaster recovery plan include?
What should a disaster recovery plan include? Don't just cover yourself for natural disaster. You need to think about other potential threats and risks that your business may have.
So what are these risks? We had the Brisbane floods. That was obviously just as terrible and natural, but it could be anything from hacking to viruses to take out your whole network. This can lead to devastating impacts on your business and cause serious downtime.
My advice would be to get a professional and to work out what needs to be implemented into your business continuity plan and disaster recovery plan. More importantly, don't leave it until it's too late.
Don't let disasters stop you from operating! Create a complete business continuity and disaster recovery plan today!
