Guiding market communications during cyber attacks

Over the past year we have guided clients that are facing cybersecurity threats, relevant for both listed and private companies. Preparation is key, and we assist in creating a controlled approach for handling leaks and breaches. Identifying when a leak is price-sensitive, we guide market communication without worsening the impact.

A solid crisis communications plan ensures a prompt response to incidents like system compromises or ransomware attacks. Tailored communication, based on severity impact assessment, safeguards reputation and financial stability.
