Sample Crisis Plan for South Korea

The Sample Crisis Plan for South Korea is a sample crisis playbook for a typical MNC operating on the Korean Peninsula. It offers a guide on what a possible playbook for your organization could look like and let's you see areas you may be missing.

Sample Table-Top Exercise

The table-top exercise is a professionally-produced scenario for testing your preparations and understanding of the plan. Most importantly, the exercise tests your ability to make decisions, identify crisis scenarios, and act. The first time through, you'll figure out where your blind spots and weak points are, allowing you to shore up the plan.

NKCT purchasers receive a free Daily Briefing report of their choice for one of South Korea or Japan, once a week, through the end of 2024. Use it to keep up with developments in the region and monitor risk and sentiment on the ground.Learn more about the Daily Briefings for each country here.
