Course Description:

Ensuring the business continuity, the continuation of critical business operations in the event of an unforeseeable disaster is a chief responsibility of an organization’s management team including its financial officer or external CPA. According to Kit Tuveson, chairman of the International Facility Management Association and worldwide facility operations manager for Hewlett-Packard in San Francisco, only 40% of the companies that experience a disastrous event at their place of business will ever open their doors again. In addition, a study developed by the University of Minnesota found that the average company which was put out of business for as little as four and a half days experienced up to a 50% loss in its capacity to operate.
Many companies believe that because they are small that they are at less risk and are unable to afford the protection that larger companies can afford. However, it is the smaller companies that are at the greatest risk and therefore should be even more inclined than the larger companies because they are more likely to have all their eggs in one basket. For example, the smaller company commonly has only one work location, a limited number of employees, all of their assets stored at one location, etc.
