It is important that organizations operationalize their resilience and business continuity management structures, document systems, decision-making processes, stakeholder engagement strategies and lines of communication through both scheduled and event driven exercising. In order to validate the ability for leadership teams to understand, respond to, manage, and transition from complex and fast-burn emergency and crisis situations, exercising is required. RSM offers organizations the ability to remotely exercise and test both the headquarters Crisis Management Teams as well as the local Incident Management Teams through innovative and engaging crisis and emergency management scenarios.
Organizations can self-select from a growing library of incident types, including situations ranging from a kidnapping, earthquakes, pandemics, aircraft accidents, arrests, ethical violation, sexual assaults, civil disorder incident, mass casualty situation and fatalities. Over 20 scenarios, at both levels, will be made available – with the list continually growing. The objective is to provide a wide selection of scenarios which allows management teams the ability to select from likely threat types, to meet emergent and just-in-time risk planning needs, or to ensure that exercises never become stagnant.
The goal of the exercising solution is to test and validate:
- Management structures, as well as critical and prioritized decision making.
- The ability to identify and evaluate threats and risks.
- The effective leveraging of resilience and business continuity document systems.
- Mapping, assessing and engaging with internal and external stakeholders.
- Ensuring effective and focused communications.
The ability to effectively leverage and engage with support and resources.
The approach is compliant with ISO 22320 for emergency and crisis management, as well as BSI 17091 for crisis management. As such, the program meets international standards. Organizational certifications are issued following each exercise.
Exercises can be:
- Self-managed – being run by those being exercised.
- Remotely supported with a technical expert calling in to facilitate the exercise.
In person/facilitated with a technical expert being present/using the system as a tool.
