Regardless of industry, most organizations have complicated
risk profiles. A product could fail and a
safety issue could force a recall. Services might come up short. A data breach could expose customer finances
and ruin their privacy. Labor unrest
could shut down production. An active shooter or other workplace violence could
devastate employees and their families.
An activist shareholder could force a restructuring or sale of the
business. The untimely death of a senior executive could spread doubt and
anxiety through all key stakeholders.
All these risks have the potential to evolve into a major
crisis that can destroy an organization’s reputation and damage its
business. The best strategy to manage
these risks and avoid such outcomes is to be prepared. This interactive, hands-on seminar will focus
on providing lawyers and their clients the tools for developing solid Risk
Management and Crisis Management & Communications programs, which work
hand-in-hand to protect an organization’s reputation and business.
Good Risk Management involves a
comprehensive view of organizational risks within all key functions well before
they manifest into organizational losses, and promotes a clear understanding of
each function’s role in controlling and reducing adverse outcomes. When a risk percolates into a crisis, how an
organization responds in the first minutes, hours and days can make the
difference between success and failure. Good
Crisis Management establishes the structure, plan and training to help
organizations identify issues early and manage them effectively before they
inflict long-term damage. Having both Risk
Management and Crisis Management programs in place generally lowers the Total
Cost of Risk (TCOR).
