A Crisis is any event that is, or expected to lead to, an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, community or whole society. Crises are deemed to be negative changes in the security, economic, political, societal or environmental affairs, especially when they occur abruptly, with little or no warning.
Resilience (organisational) is defined as "the positive ability of a system or company to adapt itself to the consequences of a catastrophic failure caused by power outage, a fire, a bomb or similar" event. In recent years the term has been used to describe a burgeoning movement among entities such as businesses, communities and governments to improve their ability to respond to and quickly recover from catastrophic events such as natural disasters and terrorist attacks.
Today, in government, commerce & industry, "Crisis" and "Business Resiliency" are buzz words and only recently considered important, brought on by the the geological, political, societal and financial events we have been witness to of late. These events have been the corner stone in the creation of necessary BRCM (Business Resiliency & Crisis Management) programs and processes in order to provide and ensure Business Continuity.
With our dedication to excellence, the Crisilience team are committed to support our clients in Strategic, Tactical and Operational elements of their Business Resiliency & Crisis Management programs through Integration, Innovation and Inspiration and of course, a timely response!
