When do clients usually require crisis response advisory?
In a crisis response and advisory capacity, we are usually engaged as soon as possible after the discovery of an actual, suspected, or imminent physical or cyber security incident or crisis. However, more often than not this is by organisations we already work with – we work hard to fully understand our clients and how they operate at all stages of engagement so that in the event that something does go wrong, we are best placed to support them in their response and recovery.
Our clients trust us to help them make the best decisions possible in the heat of the moment – this might include:
- Advising on internal investigations.
- Supporting the execution of incident and crisis response plans at the strategic and tactical levels, including local or country evacuations where necessary.
- Undertaking research and providing actionable intelligence to drive enquiries, make decisions and support further investigation.
How can AnotherDay support organisational crisis response?
Providing pragmatic advice on actions to be taken, resourcing, and identifying new lines of enquiry in the face of a crisis is often multi-faceted, bringing together a number of critical components to form a comprehensive support framework. This can include:
- Providing tailored advice on the specific handling of sensitive internal issues such as in cases of suspected or known bribery or corruption, as well as conducting due diligence, witness / whistle-blower interviews, and data analysis to support the investigation.
- Being ‘in the room’ with crisis management teams following an incident or crisis globally, providing advice on the best courses of action to protect staff, assets, and reputation, stakeholder management, and business continuity, as well as advising on and arranging additional third-party support where required.
- Providing time-critical and actionable intelligence updates during an incident – using our subject-matter expertise to support enquiries and help guide proactive decision-making on strategy and response options.
- Creating opportunities to utilise our internal technology platforms and big data, as well as subscription services for anything from human source intelligence to satellite imagery, to allow the crisis management team to better understand the incident or crisis and to support broader situational awareness and horizon scanning.
Through engaging with you at the earliest opportunity, we can use the expertise and tools we have at our disposal to provide a framework of support and actionable advice upon which you can deliver the best response and recovery possible.
