Presentation Title - Building Organizational Resiliency through an Exercise Program
Synopsis - Investing in the implementation of an Exercise Program is a cost effective way of increasing an organization's resiliency. Adopting a multi-year progressive exercise cycle must be driven by the organization's risk profile and its effectiveness must be measured against your organization's criteria and objectives related to your Resiliency program. By implementing this approach, each training event will provide a progress report and dashboard allowing you to measure, assess and track progress towards achieving and maintaining the desired level of resiliency to meet industry best practices or regulatory requirements. This investment also shifts the organizations investment in Emergency Management from response and recovery to risk monitoring, early detection, prevention & mitigation and finally preparedness. The intent is to enhance organizational resiliency and preparedness to minimize risk exposure and impact on the organization resulting in lower response and recovery cost.
