Impacts of Severe Weather Events on a Business
Severe weather events bring harm not just to individuals who have to seek shelter and evacuate the area, but businesses are ripped apart by such events. Downfall of businesses can easily start from these events. If businesses do not have a strategy planned for business recovery, the only outcome which looks likely is the complete shutdown of a business.
- Power Loss: A power loss might not last for a long time as a backup power source kicks in to provide power. However, the initial power surge can easily shut off the entire system resulting in massive losses. Applications maybe left in an inconsistent or irrecoverable state resulting in the corruption of data. As the owner of a business, you have to strategize around much more than just getting the power back up. Surveys conducted in May 2017 have indicated that businesses with a downtime of more than 15 minutes can incur losses of up to $200,000.
- Equipment and Data Loss: Storms, floods, hurricanes or any natural disasters for that matter do not have any restriction as to the place where they hit. Your computer room can be easily hit rendering your computers incapable of working. All your precious data on the computers will then be lost. If you did not work on data protection and disaster recovery, you will be in trouble.
- Recovery and Operational Readiness: Key to success of a business lies in its continuity based around the backup and disaster recovery plans. Experts have to indulge in taking decisions specific to the business in an order which ensures ease in business continuity. You would need a plan to manage and prioritize recovery and operations so that the business can continue and be successful.
