Research Report – Impact on U.S. Small Business of Natural & Man-Made Disasters

Presented by HP and SCORE: Counselors to America’s Small Business

The United States’ 27-plus million small businesses grow more dependent each day on their computers and computer systems. No matter what the field, today it is almost impossible to do business without having an internet presence and an up-to-date website.

Moreover, most businesses today, from the largest corporations with their huge enterprise systems to the smallest mom-and pop business operating with a single computer, store their most vital and irreplaceable business records electronically.

These small businesses face a very real crisis, one that a vast number of small business owners simply have not focused on – the always looming possibility that they could suffer a catastrophic data loss, one that could well threaten the very existence of their businesses.

Riding the Storm

Published By: AT&T & Cisco Systems with The Economist Intelligence Unit

Disasters regularly force companies to suspend key business operations, yet many company executives are still doing too little to prepare their companies for the eventuality.

A new survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of AT&T and Cisco shows widespread neglect of business continuity planning – despite the fact that senior management can now be held liable for any losses that could reasonably be avoided.

Failure to put in place well considered business continuity plans aimed at preventing or at least mitigating losses could be very costly in terms of profitability, reputation and market value.
