Factor 5 Weathering disasters

Addressing resiliency — Businesses and public entities are strengthening their crisis management and resiliency programs for natural and man made catastrophes such as hurricanes, earthquakes, acts of terrorism, mass-violence occurrences and product recalls.

Understanding exposures — Through improved processes, technology and information-sharing techniques, the industry will continue to accelerate the timeframe for understanding property loss, business interruption and human risk exposures before and during catastrophic events.

Preparing for the ripple effect of climate change — Flooding and mega-storms were the leading cause of disasters over the last decade and there is growing evidence that climate change is increasing the destructive force of storms. The economic impact of a hurricane, flood, landslide, or tornado is absolute and will continue to pose risks for employers.
