Using compelling examples and lessons from historic catastrophes such as Chernobyl, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the WannaCry ransomware cyberattack, this book provides an indispensable guide on how to survive future and multiplying crises. Professor Omand distils a lifetime's experience at the heart of British security into practical advice for governments, businesses, and individuals on how to prepare for, and bounce back from, the disruptive events we will all face.

Professor Omand will be on hand to sign copies of his latest book, ‘How to Survive a Crisis: Lessons in Resilience and Avoiding Disaster’ (Penguin Books: June 2023), which will be on sale.
