When you think about all the things that can disrupt your
business operations, you probably think of hurricanes, floods,
earthquakes, fires, power outages and computer malfunctions.
Companies should be concerned about such events, given the
enormous losses left in the wake of disasters like Hurricane
Katrina in 2005, and – more recently – 1,000-year floods in
Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi; several blizzards along
the Atlantic coast; and the annual outbreak of wildfires in
California and Arizona.
