Imagine the worst case scenario that could conceivably happen to your company: The death of a key employee? A terrorist attack? A kidnapping abroad? A letter bomb campaign? Product contamination? Theft of your intellectual property?
How prepared would it be if this scenario became a reality? Could the event be contained and resolved, or does it have the ability to damage your company's profile, harm your staff, destroy your infrastructure, or seriously affect the company's ability to perform its key functions?
What effect could this event have, if not handled correctly, on your company's corporate image? A dramatic fall in share price? Loss of reputation? Angry shareholders? Financial ruin? Legal action? Public condemnation?
Criminal prosecution of businesses and individual executives could be the reality under corporate manslaughter laws. Depending on the jurisdiction, these new laws can apply across the board to companies operating all over the world and place responsibility firmly upon the shoulders of senior managers.
It is therefore important to have in place a system for managing such a crisis, with clearly documented and tested procedures, and teams who are a fully trained and rehearsed.
