What Every CISO Needs To Know About Crisis Management

Featuring: Jasper Ossentjuk, SVP and CISO, NielsenIQ and Sean Martin, ITSP Magazine

As world events have demonstrated these past couple of years, crisis management is a requisite for doing business in today’s world. CISOs have choices to make in the face of the next crisis that’s sure to come…either plan ahead or react. Those who do plan, practice, and engage the full support of the enterprise often reduce the impact of a crisis in terms of business disruptions, cost to recover, and lost revenue.

In this interview, Jasper Ossentjuk, SVP and CFO for Nielsen IQ, discusses what every CISO needs to know about crisis management planning and how it differs from business continuity and disaster recovery planning. The discussion also examines how to determine if an organization is crisis resilient and the critical role a CISO plays in facilitating the necessary conversations to create crisis management plans. Ossentjuk also offers tips for formulating strategies and emphasizes the need to practice the procedure so that organizations can be flexible in reacting to unexpected crises.
