The Internet Society and the International Security Department at Chatham House will be holding an event on May 11, 2017 on the Internet and its impact on society, to mark the Internet Society’s 25th anniversary.

Sit back, close your eyes and imagine yourself in the position of companies that have faced some of the most well-known crises in history. Picture the chaos and scrambling of the crisis “war room,” and think about how hard they worked to reduce the media scrutiny and calm stakeholders.
Some of these organizations were prepared and their images were hardly tarnished. Others failed to prepare and train, so when the going got tough, the tough got frantic, and the media made the rules. In our 24/7 media landscape, that happens all too often.
