Natural Disaster Management and Business Continuity
Natural Disasters can have catastrophic impacts upon an organization’s people, business and operational interests, assets and facilities, as well as on its reputation. Planning for predictable or unpredictable natural disaster events strengthens the organization’s resiliency to them. The ability to prepare and prevent, respond to and manage, and then transition and recover from such events, whether the direct risk from the disaster itself, or secondary risks from flooding, disease of social unrest and the absence of effective rule of law is critical for effective business continuity to succeed. This course will help leaders at all levels in understanding the strategic, operational and tactical level needs when facing potential natural disaster situations, and the cascading impacts which result from these. Natural disaster situations require an integrated management approach in order to meet the varied complexities of responding to such events.
