One way to determine whether your business is prepared to manage the next natural disaster is by spending a day working form your home. "With your office off-limits, what are you unable to do [remotely] for your business?" Ken Menken of Capalon Communications said. "The answers may surprise you, and you'll quickly know what you need to move or back up out of the office." You should also pick leaders to help guide your business through crises and consider using cloud-based technology.
