If a crisis has the potential to likely cause a significant disruption to an organization, a business continuity plan can help minimize the disruption. Critical functions and processes necessary to keep the organization running have to be identified and contingency plans for each function should be developed. Testing these contingency plans regularly in a simulation exercise will allow those involved to become more acutely aware of the possibility of a crisis and enable them to act more effectively in the event of an actual crisis.
Why should you Attend: There are two categories of companies: those that have experienced a crisis and those that will. In order to react appropriately to a crisis situation it is crucial to be prepared. The development of a crisis management plan, the setup of a crisis response team and performing crisis response exercises are key to being able to react swiftly and decisively. Very often, however, crisis situations could have been avoided if the warning signals had been detected early and if they had triggered an appropriate reaction. Therefore, taking appropriate measures to be prepared for issue management can help in avoiding costly remedy procedures for crisis cleanup.
