online webinar


You have been warned.  Cyberattack is on a rise.  Are you ready?

Your organization has just been the victim of a cyberattack!  It’s not a matter of if, but when the media and your clients contact the company to learn how the breach occurred, what is being done to remedy the situation and restore their confidence. There’s a good chance the breach will soon become public knowledge.

As the executive team works feverishly to gather information, word is starting to spread through the organization. What do you tell your employees, clients and business partners? Time is ticking… Do you have a strategic communication plan? Are there resources to bring resolution and restore client confidence? What steps should have been taken to prevent the breach? Does the company have a cyber liability insurance policy? What does it do?

Proactive implementation of cyber risk management strategies, operationalizing cyber policies, and institutionalizing consistent training are a few of the best practices companies should consider as we continue to toggle between an in-person and virtual existence.

This program is Part 2 of our Cyber Series. Our panelists will discuss:
• Real world cyber-attacks, examples of company responses and lessons learned from an organizational perspective.

• Response strategies in the event of a cyber-attack to ensure seamless coordination across departments, minimize the impact to the company’s reputation and maintain brand resiliency.

• Best practices, preventive measures and collaboration models between HR and the Cyber Security team to reduce risk and create “human firewalls”.

• The critical role strategic communications plays in an organization’s business continuity strategy during a crisis and key steps to prepare for and effectively respond to a cyberattack.

• The importance of taking decisive actions from the start, developing and implementing a crisis communication plan, and effectively communication to internal and external customers.

• Learning to mitigate reputational damage to your organization and preserve trust with stakeholders.
