Crisis communication, a discipline in its own right

While communication in a crisis situation implies certain good practices (transparency, occupying media space, etc.), these are not always compatible with the specificities of a cyber crisis!

There are several problems for communicators. Firstly, the technical nature of the problem: how can the IT teams mobilised to solve the problem obtain the information they need to explain a highly technical issue to the general public, while at the same time communicating with the specialised media seeking precise information on the attack? How do you manage your crisis monitoring, with what objectives and what reporting models? How do you deal with media pressure when faced with a crisis of long kinetics, investigations over several weeks and evolving impacts? How can you communicate transparently and reassure your stakeholders without exposing valuable information to hackers? How can we occupy media space while respecting the need for confidentiality? Given the time needed to obtain reliable research results, how can we avoid silencing ourselves or running the risk of communicating too ‘instantaneously’, leading to contradictions? How can we educate without reliable, tangible information when faced with complex, multiple impacts? How do you address employees? What logistical resources are needed to communicate rapidly and massively when communication is interrupted What should be said when employees themselves see their data compromised by the attack? How can you communicate without losing the trust of your customers and suppliers, while making them aware of the increased risk of fraud that this attack exposes them to?
