After tsunamis, protests, hurricanes and wildfires, it would be expected that very few management teams would be unaware of their company’s vulnerability to disruptions like civil unrest and extreme weather.

It’s a matter of transparency (or lack thereof). Let’s take a closer look at the data and figure out why and how ISO 22301 can increase transparency and help increase awareness leading to better decision making and preparedness. (APQC, 2013)
