What COVID-19 has taught us about rapid risk monitoring, managing continuity, and executive reporting

Watch now

As a global risk management community, how do we swiftly and confidently identify, track, and mitigate emerging risks like COVID-19? And how do we manage the added challenge of doing this at a distance now that many people have been mandated to work remotely?

Since this pandemic began, we've all been trying to keep up with executive requests to help guide a response to a near-unpredictable event. Internally, we immediately turned to our platform to build tools to manage and monitor our risk response, ensuring our business can act decisively through this uncertainty.

We know that you (and many of our peers) are struggling with the same challenges—and we’ve found that most of the tools, techniques, and approaches we’re using can be replicated to help other organizations assess better and recover faster.

This is why we’d like to share our COVID-19 toolkit with you—free tools and access to risk management experts who will deliver our best practices for both the current pandemic and potential future crises. Specifically, we’ll give you a methodology for managing and monitoring your risk response around:

  • Workforce health
  • Customer continuity
  • Workforce continuity and effectiveness
  • Vendor and partner continuity
  • Financial contingency
  • Crisis communications
  • Security
  • Reputational risk events

In this 60-minute webinar, we’ll walk you through our actual experience, as well as the no-cost toolkit we’re making available to our community (including support to start using it straight away), and open the discussion to hear how you’re dealing with this challenge.
