The potential for a serious loss event, whether from storms, fire, earthquake, terrorism or other manmade or accidental act-- looms heavily on the minds of risk leaders. These exposures can significantly damage brand and reputation, weaken key operations and supply chains, reduce financial viability, and diminish shareholder/stakeholder value.
More than ever, businesses must be prepared to respond to an emergency, crisis or disaster and have strategies in place that enable them to recover from their impact. Business continuity management (BCM) increases resiliency by properly allocating resources, assists in managing brand and image, and hedges operations toward success and meeting long-term organizational objectives.
Implementing an Effective Business Continuity Management Strategy
Aon Global Risk Consulting has developed an innovative process – the Continuity Blueprint – a critical component of Business Continuity Management (BCM) that helps organizations implement and maintain an effective approach to continuity planning. The goal of our program is to create a catastrophe-resilient organization. We work with your leadership team to define cost benefits and deliver value without intrusion or interruption to operations.
