Closing the Crisis Confidence Gap

Today’s business landscape is fraught with risk. In addition to the water main leaks and product recalls that have threatened businesses for generations, senior executives must now contend with a whole new set of hazards. Cybersecurity breaches have legal, compliance, and risk executives on high alert—and with good reason. Meanwhile, new allegations surface every day regarding workplace harassment and violence.

Compounding the pressure on professionals to keep crises at bay is the 24-hour digital news cycle, which can spread news of corporate missteps at a terrifyingly fast rate—an eventuality that could devastate a company’s reputation, stock price, and bottom line.

"Focus on resiliency. Ask yourself: what am I most worried about? Start there, and think about how you’ll get back up."

John Carlin, Chair, Global Risk and Crisis Management Co-Head, National Security
