Successfully lead your company through the worst crises with this first-hand look at emergency leadership

Cyber security failures made for splashy headlines in recent years, giving us some of the most spectacular stories of the year. From the Solar Winds hack to the Colonial Pipeline ransomware event, these incidents highlighted the centrality of competent crisis leadership.

Cyber Mayday and the Day After offers readers a roadmap to leading organizations through dramatic emergencies by mining the wisdom of C-level executives from around the globe. It’s loaded with interviews with managers and leaders who've been through the crucible and survived to tell the tale.

From former FBI agents to Chief Information Security Officers, these leaders led their companies and agencies through the worst of times and share their hands-on wisdom. In this book, you’ll find out:

  • What leaders wish they'd known before an emergency and how they've created a crisis game plan for future situations
  • How executive-level media responses can maintain – or shatter – consumer and public trust in your firm
  • How to use communication, coordination, teamwork, and partnerships with vendors and law enforcement to implement your crisis response

Cyber Mayday and the Day After is a must-read experience that offers managers, executives, and other current or aspiring leaders a first-hand look at how to lead others through rapidly evolving crises.
