What is CEM?

Critical Event Management is the platform and process by which our customers protect their vital assets during a crisis. A crisis or critical event could be extreme weather, civil unrest, a cyberattack, a power outage or an armed assailant. Anything that threatens the day-to-day running of your business or the safety of your employees.

The Everbridge CEM platform allows you to proactively assess potential threats before they become critical events, to speed up your responses and ensure that appropriate action is taken, determine who or what is impacted by a threat and ensure the right action is taken by the right people, at the right time.

Report 2020

Clarity out of Chaos

After the volatility of the past year, it’s no surprise that CEM has shot up the corporate agenda. Two thirds of organisations are currently employing specialist tools and software to manage their CEM plans. And 32.4% are now able to activate their plans in five minutes.

But a lack of clear communication is threatening to undermine these efforts. Apps, texts, emails, TV, radio, newspapers and social media are being used to send vital updates about the coronavirus outbreak. But without a coordinated strategy from a single, trusted source, are these messages causing clarity or chaos?

To get more insight into this issue, Everbridge recently surveyed 9,003 employees across 13 markets. We found that:
Employees are more disparate and diverse than ever
Businesses are missing key channels of communication
Workers expect more information, more often
Targeted communications outweigh privacy and security concerns
