Despite the prevention and mitigation measures in place, it is impossible to reduce risk to zero (residual risk).
To address this residual risk, planning, one of the first steps in any preparation for the potential consequences of a disruptive event, is essential.
Potential consequences include:
- Threats to health and safety of employees and the public
- Threats to the image / reputation of the organization affected
- Environmental threats
- Loss of access to facilities
- Failure of computer systems
- Major decline of human resources
- Other failures, losses, or threats
This step helps to improve the capacity of the organization and of its partners to face these consequences and to minimize adverse impacts. To do this, it is important to structure and sequence planning activities (see diagram “Activities of preparedness, response, and recovery”) so as to develop reflexes and minimize organizational improvisation during a disruptive event.
