The offering provides communications support throughout the length of a cyber incident and across stakeholder groups to protect client reputation.

When — not if — these challenges arise, organizations must know what to say to their key stakeholders and how to make crucial communications decisions to protect their reputations and business relationships. I look forward to continuing to grow our deep roster of talented communications professionals across our global network and further expanding FTI Consulting’s specialized Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Communications practice to provide clients the tools and counsel they need to mitigate the risks of these mounting challenges.”
