According to a new press release, “Control Risks, a leading global risk consultancy and Everbridge, Inc., the global leader in critical event management (CEM), announced today the formation of a new strategic alliance. The companies will combine Control Risks’ deep operational security risk and all-hazards crisis management expertise with Everbridge’s holistic technology platform for correlating risk intelligence to manage the full lifecycle of a critical event – from awareness and assessment to remediation, response and recovery. Control Risks also will create a new specialized CEM consulting practice for customers that leverages the technology and global platform of Everbridge.”
The release continues, “The number and complexity of critical events impacting organizations are increasing each year. Workplace violence, terrorism, natural disasters, mass protests, cybercrime and IT disruptions are all resulting in economic losses amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars annually, while jeopardizing an enterprise’s employees, assets, customers, supply chain, and brand. In an escalating threat environment, businesses need to leverage the right data and analytics, reducing the signal to noise ratio, to make better informed decisions.”
It adds, “Control Risks brings over 40 years of extensive crisis management experience to its clients across all industries and global geographies, particularly in the design and implementation of global business resilience programs and crisis response. By leveraging the Everbridge CEM platform, Control Risks will enable its clients to more rapidly identify threats to business operations, zero in on impacted people and assets, automate and activate response plans, and track performance. With their combined capabilities, the two companies are providing an end-to-end critical event management solution that incorporates best in class technology with leading subject matter expertise to help businesses manage and take risks more intelligently, and with greater confidence.”
