The intensity of the 2005 hurricane season was unprecedented— with storms hitting at more than twice the frequency and severity of typical seasons. The normal seasonal average is 10 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes, according to the National Hurricane Center. But from the beginning of June to the end of November, there were 27 named storms—surpassing the record of 21 set in 1933.

But even in the midst of this torrent of destructive storms - no one could have prepared the country for the wrath that Hurricane Katrina unleashed on the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Why were businesses not more prepared to recover quickly and continue operating in the face of this disaster? Why did they not have plans in place to account for and protect employees and their families, keeping them safe and productive? Read this whitepaper to find out how a comprehensive disaster recovery plan could have helped.
