Digital Guardian spotlighted OWC’s CEO and President Tracy Williams’s recommendations for organizations to build an effective response plan in the face of a cyber attack. No organization, regardless of size, is exempt from cybersecurity threats, and having an established plan of action that immediately executes following a security breach is crucial to limit incident costs and damages to the company’s reputation.
For Williams, some of the most important things to remember when it comes to a cybersecurity crisis are:
- Share company-wide, verbally and in all written materials. Don’t neglect your own employees. Protect your people by empowering them with knowledge. They’re your most important asset.
- Identify all stakeholders and quickly develop communications strategy for each.
- Your communications intent should be compassion, honesty, and transparency.
