How to Gain a "Crisis Advantage" with Real-Time Information
In an era when information travels at the speed of the internet, a crisis can easily catch a company off-guard, garnering traction on social media and news coverage, while corporate leaders play catch-up. The potential for such crises is real: Companies with more than 5,000 employees have averaged one meaningful crisis a year for the past five years, according to a recent PwC study. But what if you could proactively limit the effects of a pending crisis, thanks to an early alert?
To ascertain how real-time information can help companies gain advanced warning of an event and use that information to gain a "crisis advantage", Dataminr analyzed 100 crises affecting global organizations over the past year.
