Top 10 Mistakes for business to avoid when dealing with a crisis

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.
