Large-scale disasters are rare. Yet it's critical that business owners create a solid plan for how they can avoid getting hit—either by a natural disaster like a hurricane or fire, or a human-created one such as a cyberattack. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), almost 40 percent of small businesses don't recover from disasters.
