Crisis management services

Minimise the impact of unforeseen events, from the minor to the catastrophic, with crisis management services to support your employees, communications and infrastructure

Prepare for crises

By nature, crises are neither expected nor pleasant. As organisations continue to face a growing number of crises, they are realizing the costly, far-reaching impacts of either not being prepared or not having the requisite capabilities readily deployed when emergency situations occur - impacts that affect their employees, their customers, their operations and their day-to-day lives. Coupled with heightened exposure to disruptive and catastrophic events in recent years and increasing federal, state and local government and commercial interdependencies, crisis management is now a critical business imperative - during times of emergency and throughout daily operations.

IBM crisis management services can ease the negative effects by helping you prepare for, respond to and recover from unforeseen events, from the minor to the catastrophic. Working with IBM, you can better prepare for events that could otherwise greatly damage your organization's workforce, operations and brand image.

Whether your crisis is a fire, a tsunami or a flu pandemic, IBM has likely either dealt directly or assisted customers with a similar event in our past experience - and chances are we've already worked through a plan of action. We've provided our clients with emergency management services in more than 70 catastrophic events worldwide - so if you're looking for a resource with broad experience in this area, look to IBM.
