Risk and Resilience

When a data breach occurs, post-crisis communication is perhaps the only opportunity that a company has to repair its reputation. Crisis situations can potentially have many negative consequences, ranging from losing customers, profitability, and market share to declining stock prices and job losses. A much less explored, but very important factor, is the impact of a crisis on organizational reputation. Corporate risk and resiliency planning are important for organizations to be able to bounce back from disruptions and thus retaining stakeholder confidence. Understanding and identifying potential adverse events in computerized networks is important for planning and implementing resilient mechanisms to defend, detect, and remediate from such threats.
