“As a small business operator, have you ever wondered what you would do when the unexpected happens? Have you at all asked a small business insurance broker how might your business fare if your main computer breaks down or is attacked by a vicious virus, or the building catches fire? Any one of these events can cause disruption in your operations, and the financial loss and impact on your business can be grievous.
What small businesses should understand is that the sooner they put a business risk management plan in place, the better they can survive the impact of potentially devastating loss. While natural events, such as the recent Queensland flood wreaked untold damages to businesses in the Sunshine Coast, the more common causes of business interruption are IT-related and human error. Our considerable dependence on technology on every level and across industries makes these disruptions no less catastrophic.”
