Catastrophes such as natural disasters, pandemics, terrorist attacks, and human error can easily disrupt normal business operations to the point of closing down forever. Statistics show that of companies that have experienced a major loss of computerized records, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% survive long-term. Planning in advance for such a loss dramatically increases your chances of surviving and resuming normal operations.

A biological attack is the deliberate release of germs or other biological substances that can make you sick. Many agents must be inhaled, enter through a cut in the skin or be eaten to make you sick. Some biological agents, such as anthrax, do not cause contagious diseases. Others, like the smallpox virus, can result in diseases you can catch from other people.
