By melding traditional crisis management with modern techniques and technology, organizations reduce the likelihood and impact of crises. The competitive advantage that comes from organizational readiness is immense: it fosters success where others would fail.
Crisis readiness, response and recovery: Reducing the impact
Today’s crises are triggered by events inside and outside of a company’s control. The list is long: political interference, instability and unrest; terrorism; physical and cyber security breaches; workplace violence; insider malfeasance; IP theft; fraud; regulatory compliance failures; product recalls; natural disasters; supply chain disruptions.
A number of factors are combining to increase the frequency, complexity and types of crises companies face. Organizations must ensure they stand ready, respond effectively and recover stronger.
Resolving critical issues and crises is a core part of Control Risks’ DNA, forged over 40 years during which we have helped more than 5500 clients in nearly 150 countries.
Islamic State is under pressure following territorial losses in the Middle East. But it is not yet defeated as either a military or ideological force. Meanwhile, we are seeing increasingly diverse terrorism threats globally - not necessarily more severe, but often less predictable.
