Protecting Your Organization Before and After a Disaster

Our prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Florence. We pray for those who have suffered loss and those who now face extensive recovery efforts.

The IRS has extended some filing and payment deadlines to January 31, 2019 for hurricane victims in certain areas. Learn more here. This IRS disaster relief page is also a good source of current information.

Whether or not you’re in the afflicted area, here are some resources to help you protect your nonprofit now and respond as quickly as possible if disaster strikes in the future:

  • Cybercriminals often exploit natural disasters, targeting organizations and individuals. Learn more about the risk in this Journal of Accountancy article, which includes insight from Lisa Traina, Partner at Traina & Associates, a CapinCrouse company.
  • Business continuity and disaster recovery planning are critical to ensuring ongoing operations for your organization in the case of a disaster, accident, or emergency. This article outlines the key components of an effective plan.

Staying on the alert for threats and planning for future impacts can go a long way in protecting your organization and maintaining operations during challenging times.

Please contact us with any questions or if we can assist you with cybersecurity, disaster recovery planning, or other services.
