Modern-day technological disasters, such as malware, ransomware, phishing attacks and data breaches are damaging and detrimental to companies of all sizes, but small- and medium-sized businesses can be hit especially hard. According to a recent Nationwide Small Business Indicator survey, 68% of small business owners don’t have a formal disaster recovery plan, even though 58% of cyberattack victims are small businesses operating with fewer than 250 employees.
Larry Schwartz, president, founder, and CEO of Midnight Blue, recently talked to the Pittsburgh Business Times about helping companies prepare and plan for worst-case disaster scenarios, and most importantly, how to recover when disaster strikes.

That’s why it’s more important than ever for businesses to put comprehensive recovery plans in place now—especially small- and medium-sized companies, because the consequences of these attacks can be significantly more devastating in their impacts on business operations, customer relationships, and the resources required to recover.
