Betty Barker, MBA
Helping small businesses stay up and running in the face of business interruptions is my goal and measure of success.
I represent the EMP Shield product, to help educate small businesses such a product exists and where it fits in their continuing operations.
When I first saw it, I realized it had a place in the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) at my last employer, where I was responsible for the development, maintenance, and testing of that plan. There are a lot of vendors with a lot of products available to help with your BCP, and the EMP Shield is just one small part of an overall plan – but it fills a niche that I couldn’t fill previously.
This site is designed to provide you with some tools to help you determine what your BCP priorities should be, in addition to helping you develop your own plan if you haven’t done so already.
I have over 20 years of IT management experience and 10 years of business continuity planning experience. I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science, and an MBA. I’ve worked at small businesses and worn many hats. I am familiar with operations, administration, sales, and IT. I have experience in financial services, healthcare, records management, logistics, and manufacturing industries, among others.

And – BONUS! – the EMP Shield is also great protection for everything in your home, plus there’s a version available for your boat or RV! Protect all your electronic equipment – and all the things you don’t even realize are run by electronics – from electrical surges by protecting every outlet in your house.
