Crisis Planning & Strategy: Using Earthquakes as a Case Study

Event: DRI Collegiate Conference, Dominican University of California, July 10

Author: Matt Bogaard

Earthquakes and numerous other passive threats to business continuity are challenging from a planning perspective because we can't predict when they might strike and how severe the impact will be. However, nearly all of the downstream, post-incident impacts can be anticipated and addressed pre-incident. A cutting-edge, comprehensive program at DreamWorks (the first of its kind in southern California) will provide attendees with tangible, specific examples of how to proactively prepare for crisis. Earthquakes provide a very topical and relevant foundation for this discussion, but the strategic framework put forth in this presentation can be overlaid onto virtually any crisis.
