Briefly…Marsh Offers “Rush” Pandemic Assessment

A new service from Marsh Risk Consulting will quickly guide organizations
through pandemic planning and recovery. The consultancy’s Rapid
Pandemic Preparedness Assessment assesses existing pandemic plans and
offers feedback on business continuity, health, insurance, supply chain
risk management and crisis management—all within a week. It also
includes a workshop for managers and an implementation roadmap. “Although
the current H1N1 outbreak generally has not had a severe impact on organizations,
many now recognize that their existing business continuity and pandemic
plans did not account for the potential economic, social, and health impacts
on their business or supply chains,” Karen Avery, leader of Marsh’s
U.S. Business Continuity Risk Management Practice, said in statement announcing
the service. "We are working to help clients identify and close these
gaps.”
