Nasty Weather Coming, Along With Its Own Security Concerns

We don’t normally venture into weather forecasting, but dire atmospheric outlooks should be considered as site security concerns. So here’s one from Government Security News: “The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently revised its 2016 Atlantic hurricane outlook, calling for a higher likelihood of an above-normal season which often brings heavy rains and storms.”

In particular, GSN notes precautions to take against flooding: Recognize your risk, have an emergency plan and “protect what matters” through the purchase of flood insurance. And make your reckoning promptly: “Most homeowners insurance policies do not cover floods, and there typically is a 30-day waiting period before a policy becomes effective.”

We’d presume that much the same process applies to business sites. But make a prompt check with your insurance agent to confirm whether your own potential liability – home or business – is adequately protected.
