A risk is a threat that may or may not happen. Prudent managers distinguish between high frequency risks that have little impact, and low frequency risks that can have a devastating impact on people and organizations. Find out how to learn from past incidents and keep your organization safer. Risks can be physical threats such as fire, explosions and spills. Or risks can be threats to your reputation, supplies and market.
Good security or loss prevention is not just perimeter security. It’s secure supply and delivery chains, image and reputation. Fascinating case studies and an upbeat presentation make this audio learning system informative and enjoyable.
Whether you’re in loss prevention, writing a crisis plan for the first time or updating your plan to take pandemic planning into account, these materials are a great start.
A crisis involves injury, loss of life or lasting effect on the environment. It taxes your response system, people and tools to the point where you may not be able to keep up. More importantly, a crisis causes people to question the legitimacy of your systems or even your organization. A disaster changes the world and creates new ways of doing business.
You will often be blamed more for how you responded than what actually happened. Legislators, regulators, publics, media and victims ask, “What did you know, when did you know it, and what did you do.” You must be able to answer.
