Has your database server been compromised by the "dd_ssh" botnet, and now you have to completely reinstall the machine? Your sprinkler system went off into your server room through a window for your 100-seat call center? Your Asterisk PBX was destroyed? You had no back-ups and no disaster recovery plan?
Even our company was severely devastated during 2004 because of Hurricane Ivan. At least our servers were hosted in Dallas and a back up in Tokyo, but still our office was looking like a milkshake, all the PCs, laptops, printers, hard copy files and cabinets and more! I admit, I collapsed to a heap on the floor crying when I first saw it, after walking 4 miles to get there. No cars were allowed on the roads for about a week.
These are just a couple of things I've seen among my friends with small businesses in the USA and abroad. So, I was just thinking to blog about this and recommend a few conferences and companies who can help in these areas. Make better plans for 2011 and forward so that your business will not only survive, but also succeed.
