FEMA HIGHER EDUCATION CONFERENCE

JUNE 8, 2004

Public and private sector universes
have shifted


A new emergency management for the
new millennium


A new business continuity for the new
millennium


An emerging homeland security for the
new millennium


Traditional professions and disciplines
provide the foundation

All hazards and holistic security


Security has become more important
than ever.


Most private sector companies have
some continuity and contingency plans
in place, as do all agencies.


Risk management is in place in public
and private sectors


Intelligence sharing is being planned







Importance of Private Sector Effort


43 percent of businesses suffering a disaster
never recover sufficiently to reopen


Of those that do reopen, only 29 percent are still
operating in two years


93 percent that lost their IT are for more than
nine days had filed for bankruptcy in one year;
50 percent, immediately


WTC bombing in 1993: 350 businesses; 150
never reopened anywhere

Private Sector Rules and Regs
