Today we update our scan of the literature for disaster avoidance, disaster management and disaster recovery. We side-step the over-arching topic of the COVID-19 disaster because leading practice discovery and promulgation is well covered elsewhere.
The disaster “domain” is characterized by niche vertical incumbents that have secured a silo of stakeholders that support a business model that has generally proven successful.
You cannot avoid many disasters but you can prepare for them.
We start with the titles developed by ANSI-accredited standards setting organizations and, time-permitting, we will review legislative proposals which fill the risk exposure gaps that standard setting organizations cannot. A few of those titles are covered in our Imperium colloquium.
A small sample of the less familiar (but no less solid) standards setting organizations in the disaster domain are listed below:
