Abstract

In response to the devastation of recent hurricanes in the Gulf Coast, this research identifies small businesses as being at-risk of failing if they experience a data loss caused by a community-wide natural disaster. Practitioner-oriented literature is reviewed to identify relevant disaster recovery components that are classified within a risk management framework. A Delphi study is conducted among small businesses to identify essential disaster recovery practices employed to prevent data and IS loss. The results of the review along with the findings of a Delphi study are reported and together establish a comprehensive portrait of the essential components of disaster recovery methods for small businesses in response to the threat of community-wide natural disasters.
