This past week, [Hurricane Michael](https://www.channele2e.com/news/hurricane-michael-2018/) hit the East Coast of the United States, and the devastation has been making [headlines](https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/10/us/hurricane-michael-intensification-strength.html) ever since. What started out as a small storm intensified quickly, with little warning. Even with advanced predictive weather analytics in place, the forecast can change with little warning.
Businesses need to take extra measures far ahead of catastrophic events to ensure their data and operations are protected. Otherwise, they could become just another statistic:
* [60% of companies](https://blog.nationwide.com/news/disaster-recovery-plan-study-results/) who experience data loss shut down within 6 months
* [68% of SMBs ](https://blog.nationwide.com/news/disaster-recovery-plan-study-results/)don’t have a disaster recovery plan in place
While it’s easy to think ‘storm’ when we think of a disaster, they can come in any form.
Core technology can fail.
A company can be hacked.
An employee can unwittingly delete a database.
Events like these happen every day, and companies need to be prepared to recover quickly because downtime causes revenue loss most SMBs can’t afford.
