Critical Event Management Insights from BlackBerry with IDC Research

Presented by

David Wiseman, Vice President Secure Communications, BlackBerry | Featuring Guest Speaker, Alison Brooks, IDC Research

About this talk

Organizations have always faced risks from natural, technological, and human-caused critical events, but not to the extent and frequency being seen today. Between 2000 and 2019, the number of recorded natural disasters doubled from roughly 200 to 400 per year, averaging 380 annually over the past decade. Since 2000, natural disasters have racked up global economic losses of nearly $1.4 trillion and disrupted the lives of some 1.7 billion people worldwide. In today’s threat environment, organizations need next-gen critical event management (CEM) systems that reduce risk exposure and enhance operational resilience. Join David Wiseman, BlackBerry VP of Secure Communications, and guest speaker Alison Brooks, IDC Research Vice President of Worldwide Public Safety, where they share best practices for managing critical events. Among other topics, David and Alison will discuss: -The planning and processes required to successfully manage the Prepare, Respond, Recover, and Continuously Improve stages of a critical event. -Why critical event communications should be seamless, consistent, and integrated across multiple channels. -The role CEM plays in helping organizations achieve their goals for digital transformation. -How to assess next-gen CEM system capabilities for risk assessment, sustainability, scalability, accountability, automation, and employee satisfaction and productivity. -If you have a stake in enhancing your organization’s resilience and continuity programs, we urge you to attend this essential management briefing.
