In the midst of the unprecedented global COVID-19 crisis, Everbridge is preparing to launch its market leading Critical Event Management (CEM) platform to its European customers. The CEM platform is currently being used by over 5000 companies worldwide to protect people, assets and infrastructure during the pandemic.
On 17 June we’ll be hosting a live webcast with senior leaders from Everbridge and our keynote speaker, Simon Paris, CEO, Finastra. The session will include an exclusive overview of the platform and a customer panel. Reserve your space and find out how Everbridge can improve your operational resilience.
Simon takes responsibility for Finastra’s strategic direction and growth. His leadership steers the company as it realizes its open platform vision, accelerating collaboration and innovation in financial services, creating better experiences for people, businesses and communities.
A firm believer in the principles of doing well by doing good, Simon chairs the World Trade Board and is passionate about how technology and open trade can drive financial inclusion and improve people’s lives. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Everbridge.
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.
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?
