In uncertain times like these, it can be difficult to identify the extent and impact a global pandemic can have on an organization.

From small to large organizations, the immediate effects and long-term impact from COVID-19 will vary across the board. However, there are underlying commonalities of risk and preparation for every company, such as employee morale, health, ability to work, and economic impact.

As the pandemic evolves, companies like yours will consider new crisis management processes, procedures, and policies to adapt and best position their organizations. Many are seeing the consequences of the pandemic through crime and supply chain disruptions, prompting them into action. Additionally, some are responding to the emerging needs of implementing a crisis plan, adapting plans to protect critical assets from emerging threats, or leveraging time to mature their established crisis management plans.

So how does an organization like yours ensure business continuity, recovery, and resilience? We’ve shared some best practices below on what you can do if you don’t have a plan in place, or how to adapt your current crisis plan if there are gaps.

Potential Risks to Your Company

Our comprehensive understanding of risk enables us to expertly assess what the COVID-19 crisis means for your organization. Since risk is interconnected, focusing on only one component, without understanding the connectivity, can lead to unintended consequences.

No two organizations are the same, so it is critical to examine all aspects of risk in order to implement a plan which effectively reflects your risk landscape.
