Crisis Management Program Planning and Crisis Plan Development

10 - 13 July 2017
Denver, CO

 Overview

​Failing to Plan = Planning to Fail22.png

The effectiveness of your crisis management program will determine the future of your business in a crisis.

Is your organization prepared for a tornado, earthquake, or flood? What about a cyber attack or workplace violence event? Will your company be able to continue to function in a public health emergency?

"This is the first seminar that I have attended in many years that I have enjoyed all 3.5 days. No wasted effort and the training was spot on."
David L Rigel, CPP
Director Corporate Security
National Oilwell Varco

In today's volatile world, the threats organizations are exposed to are expanding—and companies that fail to prepare for potential crisis events are unlikely to recover effectively.

This education program addresses harsh realities head on. Our expert faculty will prepare attendees to perform a risk assessment; develop and maintain a written crisis plan; and put that plan into action to increase organizational resilience in the face of disaster.

If your responsibilities include creating, maintaining, and/or leading your organization's crisis management efforts, this dynamic program is for you.

Just announced! An exclusive tour of the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, not open to the public, will provide an inside look at select facilities within the complex and an overview of the operations.

The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is located at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station (CMAFS), a short distance from NORAD and USNORTHCOM headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in nearby Colorado Springs. Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station falls under Air Force Space Command and hosts the activities of several tenant units. Today, the Cheyenne Mountain Complex serves as NORAD and USNORTHCOM's Alternate Command Center and as a training site for crew qualification.
