MIAMI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--When the next emergency happens, will your organization be ready? Will it be able to communicate with employees, clients and vendors, and emergency personnel? Incident response is of critical importance today for schools, government, businesses, and communities. Whether an on-campus crisis, a natural disaster, or some other unexpected event, it’s real-time information and the ability to communicate it that are critical.
“Emergency management needs the flexibility to talk to different groups at the same time and share different information with each group”
“In an emergency, organizations need information and communication, and they need it right now,” said Mike Sanchez, Senior Vice President at Enterprise Risk Management, a Miami based IT and cyber security consulting company. “If you have the information, but you cannot communicate it to the people who need it – whether it is students, law enforcement, or medical emergency personnel - you’ve already made a bad situation worse.”
Enterprise Risk Management has partnered with Collabria to offer their clients the “ReadyOp” solution, a seamless communications network which can be used by multiple groups at the same time. For example, during a recent national convention, where radio transmissions were difficult to hear, security personnel turned to ReadyOp to communicate with key leaders as well as State and Federal agency partners. More than 34,000 text messages, 15,000 emails, and an untold number of radio calls were sent via ReadyOp over 5 days.
“Emergency management needs the flexibility to talk to different groups at the same time and share different information with each group,” Sanchez explained. “And if needed, audio encryption can be added to the communications.” A centralized emergency response “command and control” center makes it possible to manage the crisis.
“This solution is not just for law enforcement or the U.S. State Department,” Sanchez concluded. “It’s a solution that will work with every organization’s Business Resumption and Incidence Response Plan. With ReadyOp and Enterprise Risk Management, you can minimize down time and ensure effective and quick communication, no matter the emergency.”
