Corporate Board Member: Board Risk Oversight Forum

Time: 12:05 PM - 12:50 PM EST

Please join Eric Bruce, Beth George and Pam Marcogliese at the Board Risk Oversight Forum where they will speak on the panel “Crisis Management: What Should the Board Do Before $*it Hits the Fan”.

Share this event with your colleagues and connections on social media.

Complex, quick-moving threats to companies can occur at any moment. Preparation can make all the difference on how—and if—a company bounces back from a crisis. Boards play a key role in challenging management’s assumptions and ensuring the crisis management plan has considered all the critical elements.

This session will outline the essentials of any crisis plan, from delineating responsibilities and defining the crisis escalation process to defining disaster recovery priorities and guidance on the board’s communication strategy. You’ll take away a framework to help you avoid the most common pitfalls before, during and after a crisis.
