CIOs playing a central role in navigating the coronavirus crisis

SUMMARY

This report takes a look at the way how CIOs can navigate the first wave of the coronavirus outbreak and start moving from reacting to the crisis to starting to get ahead of it.

According to the study, CIOs should concentrate their efforts over the next two to three months on a series of aspects being employees' safety and protection the first issue to consider. CIOs have to face this challenge by designing a crisis communication program based on transparency with the c-­suite and employees about what the Covid-19 crisis is and the steps in place to address issues.

In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, CIOs have to react fast and advise the CEO and direct the business on how best to work remotely. In addition, organizations should also focus employees on both safe remote­ working protocols and threat­ identification and escalation procedures.
