  • Terrorism is never far from the headlines and while the impact on human lives is, of course, the biggest and most important consequence of a terrorist incident, it is not the only one; businesses need to prepare for the potential impacts. Jonathan Hemus looks at five areas to focus on.

    Businesses can feel the impact of a terrorist attack, either directly or indirectly, and the effect – human, operational and reputational - can be significant. Leaders of those businesses have a responsibility to ensure that the organization survives and continues to provide jobs for its people and products or services for its customers.

    Achieving this objective when confronted by the destruction and emotional impact of a terrorist attack presents a unique management challenge which requires planning, training and great leadership under intense pressure.

    Here are five areas of focus to help ensure you are prepared to respond should the worst happen:

    Scenario planning

    Plan development

    Prioritise people planning

    Prepare for social media

    Practice, practice, practice

    Thinking the unthinkable
