Attacks on corporations and their leadership often take the form of weaponised information attacks in the media. These communications often fall on the heads of corporate communicators. But, in fact, it goes deeper than the job scope and paygrade of communications teams. The importance of understanding these advanced business threats now falls on the shoulders of board members and C-suites.

Critical questions we will confront during the discussion are:

  • How to cascade effective strategy and policy into actionable projects that drive digital resilience.
  • The interconnectedness of strategy and policy, and how to tackle the gaps in organisations or frameworks that could lead to a crisis.
  • How to recover from a crisis that played in the media or social media.

Join us in this exclusive roundtable as we discuss ways to address weaponised information in the media and how business leaders can mitigate the threats that could lead to a crisis.
