    As a career security professional and crisis management consultant, I recommend that companies form a Crisis Management Team as part of an overall preparedness planning process. The team should consist of key members of senior leadership, including the CEO, CFO and General Counsel as well as departmental heads from HR, Risk Management, Security, IT, Corporate Communications, etc. The Team should have established procedures for managing the crisis that have been practiced and fine-tuned using scenario-based tabletop exercises. This gives companies the best possible chance for success, regardless of whether it is an act of workplace violence, an executive kidnapping, a cyber breach or a natural disaster. Without a well-organized and practiced Crisis Management Team, a company is putting itself at a serious disadvantage. As the old adage goes, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” SecurityConsulting Alliance.com
