Operational Risk & Emergency Management

As global crisis events become more commonplace, it seems clear that the frequency and severity of natural and man-made risks faced by companies will continue to increase. In an interconnected world, the impact of major risk events are transmitted throughout the organisation’s global value chain (or supply chain), leaving companies of all sizes exposed to potential harm. No longer are organisations able to operate in isolation from such events.

In facing these challenges, companies must continually seek ways to improve protection of their assets, to mitigate adverse impact and to create better resilience.

FTI Consulting has been at the forefront of helping clients meet the challenges presented by operational risks. We help commercial, educational and governmental entities understand and respond to risks that threaten their physical plant, critical operating functions, and the people responsible for them, during the confusion of an unpredictable environment.

Our work is practical, standards-based, and aligns with key guidance. Engagements are facilitated by experienced professionals with top credentials, qualifications, and certifications in their fields of expertise, complemented with practical hands-on know-how from years in the field. We engage with our clients globally. Everywhere we go, client satisfaction is our key measure of success. Our services include:

Business Continuity Planning

Determining the recovery priority of mission-essential functions and processes after disruptions, documented in plans that enhance overall business resilience, align with standards and guidance, and support contractual obligations.

IT Disaster Recovery
