If there were a major disaster today, would your employees know what to do?
Do you have a system to alert everyone to evacuate, shelter in place, and lock down the building?
Do you have someone designated as the "lead" during an emergency?
Are your employees aware of who can speak on behalf of the business after a disaster?
Are they familiar with their responsibilities for building and information security?
Are they expected to show up for work following a disaster?
