Managing risk is central to every business decision, especially when it comes to commercial real estate. Property owners and operators need to fully understand those factors that pose a potential hazard to operations at their properties in order to take appropriate measures to mitigate unacceptable risks. Cushman & Wakefield’s Global Business Continuity and Risk Management Group is unique in the commercial real estate industry because of our ability to identify and categorise property-specific risk, and to specify mitigation options to reduce risk to an acceptable level.
Owners and operators who want to safeguard their entire real estate investments, including IP and brand reputation, can benefit from our in-depth analysis of location-specific risks, threat vectors, and mitigation options.
What types of Business Continuity and Risk Management services can C&W provide?
All-hazards risk assessments
Our experts evaluate any property or portfolio, in any part of the world, to identify location-specific factors that pose a risk to the property, its operations or the people who use it. Our assessments focus on natural hazards, man-made hazards (such as terrorism, crime, political instability and civil unrest), and proximity risks.
We identify factors that you should bear in mind as you begin the site selection process and especially those that pose an unacceptable level of risk to the property.
Our uniquely skilled and experienced counterterrorism experts can evaluate your property from the terrorist’s standpoint, identify its vulnerabilities and outline specific ways to mitigate terrorism risks.
We can evaluate your existing security program’s technical security systems and physical security protocols in light of the risk environment in which your property or portfolio operates and specify options to better protect your critical assets as well as potentially reduce costs.
Business continuity plan
A workable business continuity plan is critical -your occupants rely on business continuity even in the most dire of exigent circumstances. Our experts can evaluate or develop your plan against the risk environment in which your properties operate to ensure that they are up to the challenges that they face.
