BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN: How well do you know the Business Continuity Plan of your severe weather preparedness and response plan? Are you equipped to react quickly to mitigate risk?

Damaging winds, like typhoons, can take out power to critical systems in charge of informational security. Flying debris could impair storage facilities.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE: Flash flooding and landslides can affect supply chain routes. It’s no secret that natural disasters and severe weather are serious threats to public safety as well as organizational resilience.
