Tools to create a good crisis communications response available

July 1st, 2016

Tools to create a good crisis communications response available

Incident Communication PlanJanco Associates after exploring what good communications after an incident looks like, defined a crisp and robust Incident Communication Policy.

To survive an incident such as a business interruption, security breach, or a product recall, organizations need more than a successful communication strategy - they need an incident communication plan.

The overall objectives of a incident communications plan should be established at the outset. The objectives should be agreed upon, well understood, and publicized. For example, will the primary objective of the communications plan be for communications only to employees, and only during a disaster? Or is the intent to advise customers of interruptions to service? Or is it for investors and stockholders? Or regulatory agencies? Or is it some combination of these?
