    In any given year, companies experience an unexpected event that disrupts the flow of normal business. Business disruptions from changes in customer expectations, increased governmental and regulatory scrutiny, cyber-attacks, natural disaster, pandemics and other unimaginable threats can all happen so fast that companies must be able to anticipate and move in new directions if they are going to survive.

    In other words, business resilience is now more important than ever.
