The 3 most important jobs to start off 2023

As we return to work, reminisce about our holiday break, and start to wrap our head around work (I know, it’s not easy!) we wonder: where should I start?

No doubt the emails have queued up and there are projects about to commence (or already in progress!)

In regard to crisis management, we recommend getting a head start on these three important points:

1. Make sure your IT team is confident that they are well placed for a cyber attack (through external review and testing by cyber experts).

2. The crisis and comms teams should be ready to respond, with your plans well-defined and up to date.

3. Engage your external crisis management provider to train and test for a cyber attack.

It’s no longer a matter of preparing 'just in case': it’s preparing for when it happens.

The reality is no one is spared from cyber incidents. We are all familiar with Optus and Medicare, however many may not be aware of the recent attack on Lastpass, a business that “secures” all your passwords!

Here are a few more you may not be aware of:

The list is exhaustive, but you get the idea.

If you need help, reach out to your crisis training/testing provider. As discussed in our last blog, there are two elements to cyber attack preparedness: the IT side and the crisis team and crisis comms side.

Don’t wait to be taken out, start training and testing now. It will pay dividends and help everyone sleep better at night.
