Whitney Bank Hosts Hurricane Preparedness Event For Gulf Coast Businesses

June 2, 2011

College Station, TX – June 2, 2011 – With the complete devastation in their own backyard in 2005, Whitney Bank in New Orleans has seen the damage and repercussions a serious hurricane can cause on not only neighborhood homes but also businesses. When Hurricane Rita hit and other near misses followed soon thereafter, Whitney Bank realized the advantages of having a well designed and pre-planned disaster recovery plan and wanted to share that knowledge with other regional businesses.

On Friday, May 20th, Whitney Bank hosted a Hurricane Preparedness event covering the best strategies, plans, and what-if scenarios to prepare a business for a disaster. Several organizations were invited to the event, including the local Southeast Louisiana Association of Contingency Planners (ACP) chapter.

Also attending was Rentsys Recovery Service's Toby Sledge who outlined several Rentsys Recovery solutions including the use of Mobile Recovery Centers, which was deployed to the event and available for tour. "Developing a testable contingency strategy for your critical personnel is something an organization cannot afford to neglect. Many customers, like Whitney Bank, have chosen Rentsys Recovery Services to develop a continuity plan that gives them tangible resources for their most critical asset - their employees," said Toby. "This is exactly what our Mobile Recovery Solution accomplishes. We are proud of the long relationship we have with Whitney Bank in being their business recovery provider."

The Mobile Recovery Centers can be deployed and operational in as little as 24 hours to the customer's preferred location, and delivered with the customer's choice of hardware and software, which can also be loaded with the most recent version of the business's data.

With many studies indicating a major portion of businesses failing within months of a disaster, the statistics prove having a well conceived disaster recovery option will keep many businesses moving forward in the event of a fire, flood, or other major disaster. Building a proper disaster recovery plan should take a moderate amount of time, but in the long run, it will pay off immensely and potentially save a business.
