Nasty Weather Coming, Along With Its Own Security Concerns

thbmnl_gsn_sept_cover
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.
