The demand is evident, with two-thirds of over 1,400 global CEOs believing that their businesses face more threats today than three years ago. With this in mind, PwC is determined to help organisations prepare for, respond to and recover from crises.
Crises are becoming more frequent and their impact increasingly significant and widespread. For example, economic losses from cyber crime in 2014 were estimated at $375 billion, while insured and uninsured losses from natural catastrophes in the same year stood at a substantial $194 billion.
As an international ‘Virtual Centre of Excellence’, PwC’s Global Crisis Centre convenes battle-hardened crisis professionals from across the business’ worldwide network of member firms in 157 countries. The team of PwC specialists can quickly access and mobilise the best skills, experience and knowledge to help organisations handle the crises they confront by providing crisis strategies right through to execution, offering capabilities and tools to avoid crises, mitigate risk and manage impact while also organising, analysing and resolving crises as quickly as possible.
