In the age of COVID-19, cyber security incidents are on the rise. Last year saw a 400 percent increase in cyber attacks, with a staggering 80 percent of companies reporting an annual increase.

Of course, cyber risk was worsening before the pandemic, too. Insider threats alone jumped by 47 percent between 2018 and 2020. The question now is what’s your client’s plan to respond to cyber security incidents? Too much else on their plate? Here’s what your clients need to know to get prepared.

With a vaccine now in the offing, many of your clients will be tempted to turn the page on the pandemic. But those companies who failed to remember the business continuity lessons of prior pandemics like SARS and H1N1 condemned themselves to repeat them during COVID-19. Now it’s your job to keep your clients from repeating the lessons of COVID-19 in the public health crises of the future.

Most businesses entered the coronavirus crisis with a false sense of confidence in how prepared they were to handle a major crisis. Sure, they might have learned better.

A Deep Dive into ISO 22301 for Your Clients

Posted by The Brain on Jul 28, 2020 2:58:43 PM

Post-crisis business closures weigh heavily towards companies that fail to develop business continuity plans (BCPs) before major incidents. But the length and depth of the COVID-19 crisis suggest that not just any BCP will do.

Instead, it’s absolutely essential that your client’s BCP accurately identifies, quantifies, and minimises potential interruptions and risks before a crisis happens. And to that end, best-practice certifications, like ISO 22301, help clients bolster their business continuity planning risk mitigation strategy as they adjust to the new normal.

Posted by James BW on Jun 23, 2020 5:10:20 PM

Ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements is critical to your client’s business. But crisis and business continuity planning – often mandated by law – shouldn’t be a box-ticking exercise. Unfortunately, too many of your clients fall into the trap. What risks do they face treating crisis preparedness as a compliance-first practice? 

First things first: regulatory mandates following crises are ubiquitous – that’s been the case far before the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. In the U.S., for instance, employers with more than ten workers must have written emergency action plans that specify what workers and others at the workplace should do in the event of an emergency.

See How Noggin Partners are Responding to the COVID-19 Crisis

Posted by The Brain on May 5, 2020 1:48:49 PM

Even before the outbreak of the coronavirus, Forrester findings had shown that a full 100 percent of surveyed companies had experienced at least one critical event in the last two years – many firms faced multiple. The impacts of those critical events might now pale in comparison to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 crisis. Still, the fact remains, organisations must be ready.
