Crisis Management

Corporate Communications • Public Affairs

As communicators across the globe know, 2020 brought with it several trials and triumphs. Covid-19 has forced companies to create remote workforces and operate off cloud-based platforms that leave companies more vulnerable than ever to cyberattacks. When an attack hits, it is the communicator’s responsibility to keep the calm and ensure employees and other stakeholders are well-informed. So, are you ready?

To get there, join Ragan on Thursday, April 29 for a can’t-miss unique webinar to help you prepare effective internal and external communications plans for your organization.

Considering that the average cost of a data breach is estimated at $3.86 million (per IBM/Ponemon Institute), cyberattacks and data breaches are one of the biggest and most intense security threats that companies face. Many companies make the mistake of only focusing on preparing the technology side and forget about how they will disseminate information when a cybercrime takes place.

The April 29th webinar will feature real-world case studies, stories, perspectives and tactics from leading communications and IT security executives. You’ll hear how communicators have collaborated with IT departments to establish effective lines of communications to help prevent or mitigate a breach.

At this Ragan Crisis Communications Webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How and when to communicate a cyberattack to your company
  • Why Communications needs to be part of your cybercrime planning committee
  • Tips for creating a Cyber Incident Response Plan that everyone in the company can understand
  • Strategies and tactics to build reputation resilience before a crisis
  • Managing a breaking cyberattack story in the media and with internal and external stakeholders
  • How to determine the right communications approach for a potentially crippling situation
  • Best practices for creating a strong relationship between IT/Cyber and Communications teams
  • How to measure the impact of your response on your company’s brand and reputation
