As Floridians, we all know that hurricanes are a natural part of living in a tropical paradise. We've grown accustomed to those summer trips to the hardware store to stock up on batteries, flashlights, generators, and whatever else we need to protect our homes and prepare for the storm.
And when the storm comes, we stay home, board up, hunker down, and play some Monopoly. When it passes, we go outside, clean up, and go back to work.
Unless, the office flooded. Unless all the customer files, contracts and accounting documents are trapped inside water-logged filing cabinets, or being wind-blown down I-95. The water will eventually recede, but the documents are lost forever.
How long would it take for your business to recover from such a loss?
