Business Resilience

crisis preparednessCybersecurity presents challenges that are broader than an “IT issue.” A breach affects not only day-to-day operations, but also raises significant risks, including the inability of a nation or an entity to fulfill core missions.

Cadmus provides trusted, strategic advisory support on crisis preparedness to government agencies and Fortune 100 companies. We use the full breadth of our national and international expertise in crisis preparedness to create tailored strategies that assist clients in planning a unified response to the discovery of a cybersecurity attack.

Our consultants have longstanding expertise in this arena—we designed, developed, and evaluated the cybersecurity preparedness of both the public and private sectors in the first and only United States National Level Exercise on cybersecurity, a full-scale crisis simulation exercise involving the federal government, private sector, international partners, as well as 10 states and territories.

In addition, we have supported a wide range of crisis preparedness efforts involving the C-suite of critical infrastructure companies, as well as the U.S. Cabinet, including the participation of the president of the United States.
