It’s hard to predict what could go wrong when disaster strikes. Whether you’re dealing with a natural disaster, human-caused hazard, technology disruption or health emergency, an effective business continuity plan could help you respond quickly. Without a plan, the magnitude of what can go wrong could be overwhelming, and your business could be at risk.

Many of us have seen the memorials on social media, the crowdfunding websites or the donation bins at a local store for a family dealing with an unexpected loss. In many cases, the family must reveal personal details – forfeiting privacy – just to get the help they need.
