Unexpected events create uncertainty and disruption in normal business operations. An appropriate and coordinated response is crucial, and it must be immediate - the first actions taken are key in safeguarding your interests as well as your rights.
When faced with a crisis, whatever its nature, you need to act immediately to minimise potential damages and safeguard your rights. Failure to do so can negatively impact numerous aspects of your organisation — from your financial, legal, and competitive standing to your technology, processes and reputation.
When faced with a crisis, organisations struggle with its complexity, rapid evolution, the lack of information, coordination and decision-making. In times like these, you want a partner that knows what to expect, what an authority can and cannot do and that can safeguard your rights from the start. The good news is that organisations that are well prepared and have identified their partner for times of crisis upfront often emerge stronger than before from a crisis situation.
When a crisis hits, making quick decisions on the actions to take to ensure the best possible outcome can be a challenge for any organisation. That’s why PwC Legal and PwC developed the Crisis App, providing on-demand assistance by our multidisciplinary team of specialists and lawyers. Via the app, you're tapping into deep crisis management expertise in the field you need, from dawn raids by tax and other authorities, social inspections or data protection enforcement to cyber incident response, fraud detection, and business continuity advice.
