A pandemic. It is that one single punch that strikes above your organization’s weight that makes you feel the vulnerability of a hyper-networked global digital economy. In many industries, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak is heavily disrupting supply chains and causing both large and small businesses to close down branches and offices. This particular crisis was unexpected, but its repercussions will carry on into the future – a black swan – and need to be managed as such. As the first pandemic in the world of digital excess, complete with near-instantaneous stock reactions to excessive reporting and volatile public sentiment, this pandemic will set the tone for those that will inevitably follow.

KuppingerCole Analyst Alexei Balaganski has already given advice on what to do and what to avoid during a pandemic crises.

This requires action to decouple digital processes from their risky outputs in times of crisis, and to enable people to work seamlessly anytime and anywhere, so as to minimize human and IT exposure to infection and attack. These capabilities span from IAM to cybersecurity and there are risk mitigation measures that can be taken immediately, and long-term IT initiatives that will prepare your organization to handle the next black swan, pandemic or not.
