Risks are a natural consequence of doing business and they can come in both natural and manmade forms of disasters resulting in a crisis and or emergency for a business. Natural disasters such as storms, floods, fires, and cyclones have been impacting humankind since the creation of the world, whereas manmade disasters including criminal acts, safety incidents, acts of negligence, sexual harassment, cyber issues, negative media, security breaches and IT security issues (including hacks, malware and ransomware) to name a few can all plunge a company or government into a crisis or emergency state.
Managing these events with solid crisis and emergency management plans is crucial for good business. Managing risks correctly can provide a strategic competitive advantage where a business will return to normal operations quickly, while competitors may not be able to due to the impacts of the crisis/emergency.
