A cyber security crisis, such as a data breach, is a major threat to any organization’s reputation and, here in Saskatchewan, many in this province are interested in learning more about trends in cyber security.
Cyber security is the focus of an online session to be held by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce on March 23 as part of its Roundtable Series. Speakers scheduled for that session were Jeff McMurray, the Executive Director of KPMG LLP’s Technology Risk Consulting practice, Kristél Kriel, partner at MLT Aikins LLP, and Fuad Iddrisu, Chief Information Officer for the Executive Government of Saskatchewan.
Those who join this cyber security session will have the opportunity to hear about cyber trends in Saskatchewan’s business landscape. Knowing how to prepare for a cyber incident and how to respond if one occurs will be other elements of the session.
Reputation management is a crucial consideration when responding to a cyber incident. Communication is the key component of reputation management.
In the midst of resolving an incident, communicating effectively is how you maintain confidence in your organization. Communication is how others can be assured your organization is responsive, responsible and capable of navigating its way through the incident to be able to carry forward.
Here at Martin Charlton Communications, we work with organizations so they are prepared to communicate with those whose confidence they need to maintain. We provide the communication strategies, tools and content required to protect your reputation when faced with a data breach.
We work with you to identify the audiences who need to hear from you, the messages that need to be shared with them and the platforms that will be used to convey those messages and receive input back.
It is ideal to incorporate a communication strategy for reputation management in a plan for how your organization will respond to a data breach, should one occur.
However, if a data breach has already occurred and a plan for communicating is not already something you have, Martin Charlton Communications can support you in that situation as well. We have worked with numerous organizations who find themselves in a crisis and need help with their communications during it.
Senior executives — from board members to those at the executive management level down to those leading teams in information technology and information security – in a variety of organizations have a keen interest in ensuring their organization doing what is necessary to protect itself from cyber threats.
So too are those who rely on those organizations. They want to know that the organization they trust with their information is vigilant against cyber threats.
Whether you are in Saskatchewan or somewhere else in Canada, we would be happy to connect to discuss and support your communication needs so that you can maintain the confidence of those who trust and value your organization.
