Business Disruption Event: Will your business survive or be DOA?
Every business needs to plan for a disruption. With national fears now affecting commerce, now is the time for business owners to think about planning, according to officials with the Greenville Area Small Business Development Center (SBDC).
On Tuesday, March 17, the SBDC will host a seminar to help small business owners prepare for events that that could idle or close their business such as natural disasters, fire, fraud, sabotage, cyberattacks or internal accidents. The event will help businesspeople identify their most likely threats and provide guidance on how to best prepare for when they occur.
“Why should a small business owner attend this event? It’s simple. They need it,” said Earl Gregorich, area manager for the SBDC. “The vast majority of business owners never think about what would happen if there is a disturbance that is out of their purview.”
The Business Disruption seminar will include a panel discussion featuring some of the region’s leading experts from the South Carolina Department of Commerce, SLED Cyber Security, Complete PR, SC Insurance Brokers and Ronk Security. There also will be hands-on applications, as well as networking time.
