Business Continuity Planning 101: Be Prepared!
Two hour tele-web seminar September 26, 2012

Join us for this information packed webinar to learn the basic requirements of a business continuity plan with a focus on the business impact analysis and testing.

This tele-web seminar will begin on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM Pacific Time.

If you have experienced some type of event that required implementation of your business continuity plan you realize that planning is critical. Disasters are unpredictable and can strike anywhere at any time with or without warning. In 2011 alone there was a plethora of floods, tornadoes, straight-line winds, severe storms and wildfires. So far in 2012 we are once again seeing wildfires that are threatening many areas in the west.

In Ohio the US Dept. of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency made available federal disaster aid for areas affected by severe storms and flooding during the period from April 4 to May 15, 2011. On May 22, 2011, an EF5 tornado hit Joplin, Missouri. Commerce Bank lost one banking facility and another was severely damaged. In 2008, First State Bank, Parkersburg, Iowa was destroyed by a tornado, Cedar Rapids Iowa, experienced severe flooding. January 2009, Midwest Bank of Western Illinois, a fire severely damaged the bank, and Hurricane Ike hit the coast. As of August 8, 2011 FEMA reported 59 disasters for 2011 and 81 for 2010.

These are just some of the more devastating events, which hopefully you will never experience. However, you must also be prepared for more probable events such as power outages, loss of Internet and loss of telecommunications, which may be shorter in duration and happen more frequently.
