September 5, 2018 - It would be wonderful if we could solve all problems in the workplace before they occur, but this is not likely to happen. What we can do, however, is pay attention to the issues that may arise and learn how to mitigate or avoid them. That's what these articles attempt to help us with.
August 29, 2018 - September will be the 14th annual National Preparedness Month. This year's theme is "Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How." Having a plan for dealing with disasters is the most important thing, and these articles can help you focus on ways to prepare your business, your employees and everyone's families for various disasters and situations.
August 22, 2018 - I don't think anyone would argue against the fact that reputation matters. But we may not be aware of how much it matters and how important it is to understand and keep control of corporate reputation. A tarnished reputation can make it difficult not just to get clients or customers, but it will make it harder to attract and keep good employees. The bottom line is that a tarnished reputation will impact your bottom line; you need to keep it polished.
Business Continuity Planning
August 15, 2018 - Most of you are aware that business continuity planning can be the difference between life or death for your company in the event of a serious disruption or disaster. If you have a plan, great; but is it up to date? If you don't have a plan, you need one. These articles can be helpful to you regardless of your situation, giving you help in getting started or causing you to re-think what you're already doing and to consider some things you hadn't thought of.
Cyber Issues and Business Continuity
August 8, 2018 - According to many experts, it's time to integrate cybersecurity and business continuity. No longer is cybersecurity only the purview of the IT department with the rest of the organization unknowing about how or why it's done. The danger presented by cyber hacking makes it critical that business continuity plans include response to cyber issues. They are a risk to us all, and these articles are further proof of that.
July 25, 2018 - While cloud services can help secure your data, save you money and are one of the most critical developments in recent computing history, they don't eliminate the need for a good business continuity or disaster recovery plan. Just read these articles to see why... and to learn about some of the risks involved as well as the way cloud computing is already changing.
July 18, 2018 - With the increase in workplace violence, we are almost not surprised to turn on the news and find out about a new incident. The recent shootings at the Capital newspaper in Annapolis are only one example of such an event. The questions we need to answer are how to recognize the signs, what to do about preventing such violence and what needs to be done following a violent incident. These articles can help provide those answers.
July 11, 2018 - Managing risk may be on of the biggest issues facing businesses of all sizes today. What's your process for risk management? The best approach is to develop an integrated program to which all parts of the organization -- not only the risk management committee -- contribute. Perhaps these articles can help you review your process and/or design one that might be more successful.
Awareness, Testing and Training
June 27, 2018 - If nobody reads your business continuity plan (or even knows it's there), can it possibly work? Probably not, and that should worry you. Just because the plan is done, doesn't mean your work is done. It's critical that everyone in the organization understands who's in charge, what each person's role is and how everything is supposed to work. Otherwise, why have the plan at all? These articles look at how awareness, testing and training are done and why they are important.
Safety and Security in Workplace Emergencies
June 20, 2018 - Many of us don't really believe that our organization will experience an emergency. If you're one of those folks, you need to put a greater priority on safety and security in the workplace because work emergencies have become more and more common in recent years. There is a lot of helpful information available on how to improve your safety and security quotient... we offer some in these articles.
Meetings/Events Risk and Mitigation
June 13, 2018 - Something always happens at events... you've had the experience yourself when something goes wrong and a crisis ensues. So it's never a case of IF you need a mitigation plan, but how soon can you put one together. And these days, there are more new risks: data breaches, terror attacks, sexual harassment, disease, and others too numerous to mention. If you haven't sat down and considered your next event's vulnerability to various risks, it's time to do so now.
