Importance of information in crisis management: a statistical analysis by ResearchGate

Be prepared for the various crisis scenarios your organization may face.

The last few years have seen a sharp increase in cyber risks and crisis for companies in all sectors. In a post-pandemic context marked by geopolitical tensions and an increase in disasters and impacts linked to global warming, acquiring the ability to overcome a cyber crisis is clearly no longer an option. Cyber risk is more than ever at the heart of the concerns of CISOs and corporate management. Constantly on the rise, threats are adapting and evolving, and attackers are benefiting from technological innovation just as much as the organizations they target: protecting oneself is no longer enough.

We must accept that a cyber-attack can happen, so we can prepare for it and respond as best as we can.

Our offer enables you to acquire a multi-purpose, yet simple and understandable crisis management system to deal with impacts, unforeseen events, and uncertainties in emergency and stressful situations.


From maturity assessment to crisis management exercises

Assessing your readiness

We can carry out a complete inventory and assess your organization’s maturity. We can also map major risks and feared crisis scenarios.

Setting up your crisis organization

Our experts design and structure crisis units and define incident and crisis management processes. They also build the necessary toolkits for each of your feared scenarios and offer you a choice of nominal and secondary crisis tools.

Training your teams

Our teams raise awareness and train members of your management, operational and decision-making crisis units. We also offer tabletop exercises and crisis simulations.

How to measure the effectiveness of a crisis management system?

The effectiveness of a crisis management system can be measured through simulation exercises, post-incident feedback, and by assessing the company's ability to quickly resume operations. Our team will support you in the ongoing evaluation and optimization of your system.

What are the advantages of proactive crisis management preparation?

Proactive preparation helps to anticipate crises, reduces response times, and mitigates consequences. It also offers the opportunity to learn from past crises, adjust strategies accordingly, and continuously improve corporate resilience.

Why are cyber-attacks a serious threat?

Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and can lead to data loss, operational disruption, and breaches of confidentiality. A crisis management system including a cybersecurity strategy is crucial to protect digital assets and minimize risks.

How can crisis management impact a company's reputation?

Inadequate crisis management can have damaging consequences for a company's reputation. An effective crisis management system enables quick reactions, minimize negative impacts, and communicate transparently, thereby preserving the stakeholders’ trust.
