    • Fritz Institute 17-Nov-09 Business of Community Resilience The Role of Small Business in Community Preparedness, Response and Recovery Realities, Changing Expectations, and Resources America's small businesses form the backbone of the nation's economy. Small businesses alone account for more than 99% of all companies with employees, employ 50% of all private sector workers and provide nearly 45% of the nation's payroll.
    • SMBs and The Global Reality Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are the lifeblood of the global economy. Comprising more than 99 percent of all businesses, SMBs employ more than half the world’s workers. Most of the world’s patents and more than half of the world’s GDP come from small and mid-sized business. While SMBs are powerful forces in the world’s economy, they often run lean and forgo basic protections against business risks due to lack of time, budget and staff resources.

    • SMBs and The Myth of Recovery When SMBs were asked what would happen if they lost all their computers in a disaster (such as a fire) and had to rebuild… Two thirds (67 percent) believe their customers would either ― wait patiently until the SMBs systems were back in place or they ― would call the SMB to get what they could and would wait patiently for the rest until systems were back in place. November 17, 2009 - Business of Community Resilience and SMBs (D. Nelson) 3 3
    • SMBs and The Reality of Preparedness Most SMBs (76 percent) report they live in a region that is susceptible to natural disasters (such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes). SMBs also report they frequently experience outages or downtime. The average SMB experienced three outages within the past 12 months, with the leading causes being virus or hacker attacks, power outages or natural disasters. With this kind of exposure, and with the confidence SMBs display about their disaster preparedness, one would think SMBs have solid disaster recovery plans in place. However almost half (47 percent) report they do not have a plan to deal with such disruptions. November 17, 2009 - Business of Community Resilience and SMBs (D. Nelson) 4 4
    • National Preparedness Public Law 110-53 – Title IX – Private Sector PL 110-53: Requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide for the development of a private sector led voluntary certification program for all-hazards business emergency preparedness. The program is to reflect existing best practices and standards. http://intelligence.senate.gov/laws/pl11053.pdf November 17, 2009 - Business of Community Resilience and SMBs (D. Nelson) 5 5
    • Title IX Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Excerpts from Federal Register Notification (Vol. 73, No. 248, pp 79140-79148, December 24, 2008): — Private-sector preparedness is not a luxury; it is a cost of doing business in the post-9/11 world. (pg 79140) — In implementing recommendations of the 9/11 Commission (pg 79141): DHS is to identify and promote specific standards for private sector preparedness, e.g. NFPA 1600. Conformity to the standard(s) will establish the standard of care owed by a company and its employees. Companies can benchmark their disaster preparedness, emergency management, business continuity and enterprise risk management programs against the standard(s). Insurance and credit rating services can benchmark conformity with the standard(s) to assess insurability and creditworthiness. Companies can use conformity with the standard(s) to promote investor confidence. November 17, 2009 - Business of Community Resilience and SMBs (D. Nelson) 6 6
