Our Approach to Resilience Preparation, Planning and Management
At GSDM, we have developed our own unique approach to resilience planning, preparedness and management. This is tailored to the exigencies of different types of conventional, novel and emerging man-made as well as technological threats, risks, hazards and vulnerability assessments.
Our advanced approach to business continuity management, including organizational resilience, is informed by our deep subject matter expertise, broad-ranging experience, as well as by years of observing where gaps can exist using more traditional approaches.
Of especial importance to the development of effective solutions in response to man-made and technological risk is our unique ability to engage with relevant security, safety and disaster management factors. Our comprehensive, integrated approaches reduce the potential for often unnecessary gaps and vulnerabilities as well as over reliance on technological solutions, all of which can reduce organizational resilience.
“Resilience is a strategic objective intended to help an organization to survive and prosper. A highly resilient organization is also more adaptive, competitive, agile and robust than less resilient organizations.
Organizational resilience is the ability of an organization to anticipate, prepare for, and respond and adapt to everything from minor everyday events to acute shocks and chronic or incremental changes.”
(British Standard 65000: 2014 Guidance on organizational resilience).
