The number of regional disasters is growing and the expectation is that they won’t subside anytime in the foreseeable future. As companies revisit their risk management approaches, many are discovering not only a lack of focus on the key risks to the organization, but also a lack of understanding of how the key risks can impact corporate performance.
However, organisational resilience is on the rise and institutions are looking to have a stable business resilience program and how well can it be a part of the Business Continuity Program.
