Resilient Communications Made Easy – Part 1
Why are communications important to resilience?
First of all, let’s take a few minutes to answer the most obvious questions. What have communications got to do with resilience? What are you going to get out of this series of articles?
We work with people who need to keep their organisations running during business continuity disruptions, disaster recovery events, and sometimes traumatic situations. Those events can range from severe weather, to reputational crises caused by data breaches, to facilities issues, terror attacks and infrastructure breakdowns … the list goes on.
The one commonality that those situations have is that effective communication plays a key part in mitigating the impact. So, we’re going to focus on overcoming common roadblocks to implementing resilient communication solutions and ensuring that you can keep your people safe, informed and connected by communicating effectively.
Before we start talking about how to go ahead and implement actual solutions, first we need to be really clear on why communications are so important to resilience.
