Managing Risk: Tools for Building a Risk & Crisis Program

Managing Risk: Tools for Building a Risk & Crisis Program
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.

Please note the date change to Wednesday, June 21.

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).
