Navigating COVID-19 #6: Risk management

Risk management is used primarily to identify the steps we can take to avoid loss or lessen the impact of threats such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and terrorism. But what about pandemics? What do risk leaders in business and government need to bear in mind as they respond to the current COVID-19 crisis—and prepare for a future that may very likely include additional waves of infection? In this episode of our Navigating COVID-19 podcast, Reid Sawyer, Head, Emerging Risks Group and U.S. Cyber Risk Consulting Practice Leader, Marsh; and Susan West, Vice President of Risk Management for ICF discuss how to mitigate the risks associated with a pandemic, and what business and governmental risk leaders need to think about today to prepare for an uncertain future. Moderated by Marko Bourne, Vice President of Disaster Management and former director of policy at FEMA. We've also published a list of helpful resources compiled by our disaster management experts to provide clarification on relevant response and recovery topics: https://www.icf.com/insights/disaster-management/covid-19-resources
