Crisis Communications Workshop With Donald Steel and Piers Schreiber: Creating Crisis Communications Plan for Data Breaches

How a company communicates about a breach is an essential part of breach response. In the age of social media and the 24/7 news cycle, the amount of public scrutiny companies face as they go through a major incident is at an all-time high and can have significant long-term impact on corporate reputation. This interactive workshop will examine how, what and when companies need to communicate about a data breach. You will be taken  through a hypothetical breach scenario examining the proper tactics and messages to deliver throughout the lifecycle of the incident; from discovery through resolution.

This workshop will cover: 
- Writing A Crisis Plan: The Role Of Executives
- Key Principles Of Crisis Management: Writing A Crisis Statement
- Managing The Media: This segment will include key tips in managing the media, giving broadcast interviews and the essentials of  organizing a good press conference
- Interactive Crisis Simmulation: Participants will be divided into groups and each group will select a spokesperson who will be interviewed on the particular crisis situation.  As the crisis develops, other spokespeople will be taken.


The simulation will also include a press conference where the spokespeople have to answer journalist questions.
