A new book, authored by past publisher of Security, Mark McCourt, takes a look into the history of crisis management and mass casualty events.

The book explores everything from snowstorms to 9/11 and the COVID-19 pandemic, and McCourt uses interviews from security and crisis management leaders throughout the industry to delve into preparedness and building a competitive market advantage.

During each crisis or mass casualty event, the extent to which management strategy, technology and communications plans are leveraged, or not, make all the difference in business survival, continued operations and duty of care for its stakeholders.

In “Snow Day,” author Mark McCourt shares the vision and expertise of transformative leaders, including Boston Scientific, Microsoft, Slack, The University of Pennsylvania, The Kansas City Chiefs, Jacobs and Impossible Foods, about their professional crisis management expertise and personal experiences. Charged with assuring and enabling continuous operations by protecting both the business and the people, the COVID-19 pandemic was the ultimate stress test for those charged with successfully leading enterprise risk and resilience.

As a writer, speaker and researcher, McCourt has focused on the business contribution risk management and security spending makes to enable and assure business. He founded The Security 500 program chronicling leadership and best practices for Chief Security Officers at the world's largest enterprises. He is the founding publisher of Security magazine, the first business media focused on security’s mission of assuring and enabling business success.
