Loss control is a management priority whether a fleet is large or small. A Fleet Loss Prevention Program can decrease insurance claims and help mitigate the frequency and severity of future losses. Often the other tangible and intangible benefits of these types of programs can be overlooked, but are just as valuable to your company!

It's a normal human tendency to stay optimistic and believe that you are immune from disaster. We say, "that'll happen to other people, I'll hope for the best and focus on my day-to-day activities."
Imagine if a disaster hit and you sustained serious downtime, got hacked, or lost data your customers needed. The results would be disastrous for your reputation and could mean the end of your business. You'd be kicking yourself for not preparing.
But just like a teenager learning to drive, sometimes getting in an accident helps you learn to operate more safely. The good news is that there are practical things you can do to reduce your risks of software disaster.
Here are 3 things you can do TODAY to reduce your software risks:
1. Create a Crisis Phone Tree
I am a huge fan of lo-fi approaches to dealing with the unknown. This may seem like basic housekeeping, but it will help you handle a crisis much better than having the wrong people or the wrong contact information. When's the last time yours was updated? Also, you could create a simple rotation to designate who is "on call" in a given week to handle anything unexpected. You don't need heavy policy & procedure if you have smart people who are familiar with the software empowered to do the right thing.

Welcome to the ClearRisk Blog. This is our first posting. ClearRisk is a web-based risk management company. We are an early stage company, started September 20, 2006. This blog is about how we manage risk at a company that helps other companies manage risk. I’m angry at myself for not doing this sooner! If you work at a start up or an early stage company, or if your company isn’t new but you want to keep up on risk issues in a technology company, then I hope you will find this blog useful!
