Andavo President and CEO, Brenda Rivers, interviewed for Insurance and Financial Times’ article “Preparing for the Worst-Case Scenario.”

Insurance and Financial Times’ May/June issue elaborates on the issue of planners facing a heightened duty of care amid growing safety and security attacks. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report 2017, large-scale terrorist attacks, extreme weather events and massive incidents of data theft/fraud are three of the top five risks in terms of likelihood.

Within the article, Rivers, certified by the Institute of Crisis Management Communications, elaborates on the significance of everyday threats, and how to prepare for them:

“Planners are increasingly anxious about their responsibility for crisis preparation, yet most lack anything more than security handbooks and checklists to guide them. Reading the security handbook is not preparation. If the organization’s response team does not know what to do in the first 10 minutes of a crisis, they are not prepared.”
