Business Continuity Strategies offered at Free SBA/Agility Webinar

 

WASHINGTON – What are the biggest and most common mistakes business owners make when facing down a disaster event?  It could be flooding caused by a big hurricane, or the loss of sensitive and vital data inflicted by a hacked account.  How you respond within the first few hours of the incident can either make your company a survivor, or result in the costly failure of your business.

Get tips on how to avoid making the mistakes that could cause you to lose your hard-earned assets at a free webinar hosted by Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration on Tuesday, Dec. 11.  Agility CEO Bob Boyd will share anecdotes from business owners who experienced natural and man-made disasters, and what they learned during the recovery phase.  

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit http://www.preparemybusiness.org/ to access previous webinars and for additional preparedness tips. 

“SBA’s small business training network is a virtual campus for the small business owner,” said South Florida District Director Francisco “Pancho” Marrero. “This web chat will be very informative to help small business owners be prepared to respond in a business crisis.”

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit www.sba.gov/disaster.
