Crisis Readiness, Response and Recovery

Crisis management is about what comes next

Every organisation can face a crisis – sometimes more than one at the same time. Customers and stakeholders expect you to be prepared, respond effectively and recover quickly. 

Today’s crises are triggered by events inside and outside of an organisation’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. Organisations must ensure they stand ready, respond effectively and recover stronger.
