Focus: Brand sabotage or brand resilience?
Protecting your brand in a high-speed world
Brand stewards need to be more concerned than ever about unintentional, as well as deliberate, attacks on their brands. With a 24-hour news cycle and omnipresent social media that can turn even small blunders into public relations catastrophes, brand reputation is more precarious than ever, and even the most venerable brands are vulnerable.
While some brand saboteurs deliberately seek out opportunities to subvert carefully crafted corporate strategies, others may be unwitting employees who live within the organization or just outside its borders, such as suppliers, channel partners, or spokespeople. Developing capabilities to detect threats and respond effectively is critical to making seemingly healthy brands truly resilient. It’s about playing an active and consistent defense.
