13 Background Influenza pandemics have occurred every years. They happen when a new influenza ('flu) virus strain develops which can spread easily from person to person. Because it is new, humans have little or no immunity to the virus. The "Spanish 'flu" of was the most severe pandemic of the last century, killing up to 40 million people worldwide. The most recent influenza pandemic, the "Hong Kong 'flu", occurred in 1968 and was far milder, causing an estimated 1 million deaths worldwide. There is concern among scientists that the outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza that began in birds in Asia in the late 1990s could change to a form that is easily spread from person to person, and so cause a new pandemic of human influenza. The probability of this occurring is unknown, but is probably at its highest level in several decades. Source: NSW Health

14 Considerations In a severe pandemic, we might expect: that the pandemic virus may spread rapidly vaccines, antiviral agents and antibiotics to treat secondary infections to be in short supply. It will take several months before any vaccine becomes generally available medical facilities to be stressed sudden and potentially significant shortages of personnel to provide essential community services due to widespread illness the effect of influenza on individual communities to be sustained over a long period of time, even compared to other natural disasters. Source: NSW Health

15 What we learned with SARS Early splitting of work forces and quarantining Restricted access to continuity centre Twice daily temperature checks for all staff at site Additional cleaning to maintain high sanitary standard Optional face masks Increased absenteeism due to fear, quarantine orders and child-care arrangements Increased costs (temperature checks, cleaning, etc)

17 Understand how resilient you are Best-in-class internal control system Best in class cost structure Regular BCP rehearsals Resilient Business differentiator Security plans regularly tested Defined, mature processes AS/NZ 4360 Mature processes Isolated process improvement activity Planning for change Durable Internal controls tested Security and DR plans regularly tested Reliable IT ITIL mature Clearly defined internal controls Understand business needs and processes Some process training Incident management Downtime issues Poor processes Very weak internal controls Off-site DR and backup Mitigating risk is a focus Change management Stable No security policies Reactive reporting Monitoring and reporting tools used Delicate Fragile IT cost reduction Right people in the right place at the right time No KPIs Security and DR plans in place PIRs used Internal controls defined IT too expensive No documentation No continuity plan, does backups

18 How do you create a resilient corporation? Step 1: Assess where you are today Step2: Develop a crossfunctional team Step 3: Design and agree an improvement plan Resilient Durable Stable Delicate Fragile Step 4: Operationalise the improvement plan
