#85: Importance of business continuity and disaster recovery steps with Ongoing Operations' Kirk Drake...
This year has been nothing short of exasperating in regards to Mother Nature unleashing her worst on the U.S. with record tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, floods, blizzards, etc. Since credit unions, like so many other businesses, have been adversely affected by these natural disasters, we invited Ongoing Operations' Founder and CEO, Kirk Drake, on the program for his expert insight on how to prepare and cope when the weather rears its ugly head. Kirk also points out that not only did the weather impact credit unions, non-weather related events can wreak havoc on operations as well. Kirk provides some helpful business continuity tips, along with a few credit union examples to show what can be done. I hope you take a few minutes and check out what Kirk has to say. He has some very helpful items to share.
