RIMS, the risk management society, has  joined the US-based Business Continuity Coalition to help build a more stable insurance market that will support organizations as they navigate future pandemics.

The Business Continuity Coalition represents a broad range of business insurance policyholders – large and small – from across the US. It is working with policymakers and other stakeholders to develop an insurance program that ensures business continuity from future economic losses from pandemics and other emergencies necessitating widespread closures of the economy.

“The COVID-19 global health pandemic has taught business leaders many valuable lessons, most importantly, the need for insurance solutions to protect assets, employees and keep their enterprises up-and-running amidst a health crisis,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “It is encouraging to see so many organizations – even those outside of the risk management and insurance space – recognize the value of risk management. We are excited to be a part of the Business Continuity Coalition, look forward to collaborating with others and are ready to share RIMS network’s vast experience to help advance this effort.”
