Although small businesses recognize the impact data loss could have on their business, more than half do not have a disaster preparedness plan for business data, according to a study from Carbonite. During the seminar, Pete Lamson, Carbonite SVP of Small Business, will discuss the common reasons a small business owner may not have a disaster preparedness plan in place, what can happen to these businesses should a disaster strike, and how to create a plan on their own now. He will also take a deeper look into actionable items that can be implemented today to help protect small businesses and provide resources to help further prepare them overall.
Attendees will learn:
- What common misconceptions are holding back many small businesses from having a disaster preparedness plan in place
- The 3 critical components a disaster preparedness plan should include for a small business
- How to create a plan to help ensure your business can continue operating should a disaster – natural, technical or otherwise – strike
- Key (FREE) steps a small business can implement immediately to get started with a plan.
