Latest insights on how the smartest organisations stay ‘crisis ready'
Working with you across industries and geographies
160 years of crisis support and PwC's reputation for trust
Global expertise. Smart technology. An agile team.
With the Global Crisis Centre, we take a holistic view of the crises, enable insights and help our clients adapt to the new normal
Often, a crisis isn’t an isolated, contained incident. It isn’t fleeting. It builds, unfolds, peaks - and the effects can be long-lasting. And each crisis is different: some you know about in advance, some you know could happen one day, while others are just impossible to predict.
Our crisis specialists are backed up by the power of the global PwC network. We can convene strategists and data analysts. Professionals in cyber security or financial crime. Communications teams and project managers.
So while you won’t always know what will happen, or how things will play out, you will know you’ve got the right team by your side.
We help organisations to anticipate and minimise the chances of a crisis occurring.
We work with you to review and assess your current capabilities to manage a crisis. We’ll draw on the knowledge and experience of our crisis professionals from around the PwC network – and use our proprietary crisis simulation technology – to help you improve and enhance your crisis response strategy and capabilities.
The result: you’ll be equipped with the governance, processes, tools and technology you need to respond with confidence to any crisis you might face.
When a crisis hits, business as usual becomes a thing of the past.
Responses to crises often lack long-term vision, discipline and structure. As a result, decision-making is paralysed by fear of making the wrong call. In fact, even though many organisations end up doing the right things, they can still be disjointed, lacking full integration across the spectrum of response efforts they put in place. When this happens, the big picture can be lost, costing you time, financial capital, and public trust.
The Global Crisis Centre convenes crisis experts from across the PwC network to help you. Together, we provide you with a variety of solutions and insights – so you can understand, prioritise and address the crisis, build confidence with your stakeholders and take control of the situation.
The effects of a crisis can be long-lasting. We’ll support you as you recover, helping you to stabilise your operations and adapt to a new ‘business as usual’. So your recovery becomes an opportunity for growth.
We help you create and implement new business strategies, and provide technical and functional expertise as well as short and long-term project management support. Beyond that, our ‘recover’ solutions will help you identify and capitalise on the lessons learned, so you’ll have stronger capabilities for crisis management in the future.

Studies have shown a correlation between impact on shareholder value and perception of management’s ability to deal with the aftermath of a crisis. Those companies that are adequately prepared for crises are able to more proactively minimise the impact of a crisis and respond more quickly, creating a distinct competitor advantage.

We've worked with companies, governments, regulators, NGOs and international organisations - helping them prepare for, respond to and recover from some of the most high profile crisis events in recent times.
