In the business world, disaster can strike in many ways. Cyber crime, identity theft, data loss and natural disasters can cost significant loss of time, money and productivity. That's why, whether your business is large or small, you need to arm yourself with information and a preparedness plan so you can quickly and accurately communicate with all stakeholders during any unfortunate, disruptive event.
Take a look at the Varolii and Honeywell 2009-2010 Preparedness, Security & Crisis Communications Survey in the Knowledge Network. It covers a variety of security- and preparedness-related topics to help to mitigate and minimize the fallout from crises, whether natural or otherwise. According to the survey, the "415 respondents represented a good mix of different industries, the majority of whom come from government agencies and companies in the healthcare/pharmaceutical, technology, education, commercial and financial services sectors." The majority of the respondents represented small-to-medium-sized organizations. The responses and data collected offer valuable insight into the current state of preparedness, security and crisis communications,as well as emerging trends, as described by leading experts in these fields.
