The majority of Canadian small business owners are unprepared to deal with common disruptions that can impact their ability to do business, according to the American Express Small Business Monitor. Almost half of small business owners are unfamiliar with the practice of business continuity planning.
The monitor also revealed that the vast majority of Canadian small business owners have not taken precautions that cost little or no money. A full 75 percent have yet to talk to their staff about how to handle or avoid a disruption.
