• We help organisations prepare their Cyber Incident Communications response

    Workshops, Policy Manuals, and Cyber Crisis Communications Counsel to see you through an incident.

  • Why prepare for a cyber incident?

    When a cyber security breach occurs, communications teams and senior managers are often left literally in the dark, with no computers, email, telephones or access to the internet. At times like this, staff, especially senior staff, can be materially impaired if they say the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person, or mislead the public in any way about the cyber incident.


    We help organisations determine what you say, who says it, how and when you say it, and who you say it to, during a cyber security incident. Then we equip you with the protocol and materials you need to act with in the event of a cyber security incident.


    Communicators for any organisation need a thoughtfully crafted cyber incident response communications plan to prepare them for their roles and responsibilites to communicate a cyber incident.
