My point of view

Managing a crisis is the ultimate test of leadership

One piece of advice: As a security or risk professionals, it is best to use a crisis as the opportunity to reset your moral compass. Morality does matter, and yours will show itself under pressure. True leaders assert themselves and their sense of right and wrong. Even in complex situations, if you can figure out what the high road is, take it. In the long-run, it will be to both yours and your organization's benefit.
