Resilient and ready on all fronts.

At a time of rising geopolitical tensions, increasingly frequent and destructive natural disasters, and cyber and retail crime epidemics, organizations must be prepared to respond and recover from multiple incidents at once.

Joel Thomas advises international bodies, government agencies, and global companies on modern threats and is the leading evangelist for “all hazards” readiness and resilience.

Infinite Blue CEO Frank Shultz sat down with Joel to discuss why the chances of multiple concurrent incidents are rising rapidly and what resilience professionals need to consider in this new, escalating environment.

About Frank Shultz.

He is a frequent speaker on the enterprise risk and future of emergency management and a contributor to a variety of industry publications.
