WASHINGTON – Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to losses caused by natural disaster, cyberattacks, and – on a smaller scale – structural failure due to random events like faulty sprinkler systems or localized fires.

 

One of the first steps in creating a business continuity plan involves assessing risk.  Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration in a live online discussion on Tuesday, July 10 for a discussion on how to protect your business from the risks that could force you to close your doors for good.   

 

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies at its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars and get additional preparedness tips.

 

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.
