Newton's cradle

As the COVID-19 Pandemic continues, businesses and individuals are adjusting to the “new normal.” Social distancing and quarantines are working to address personal health and safety issues. But business needs are diverse and more challenging. How do we ensure the safety and security of businesses, especially financial institutions?

It’s crucial to solidify Business Continuity and Contingency Planning. Effective business continuity processes to mitigate operations risk are mandated by regulation and industry best practices regardless of the cause of the crisis. Today, we face a pandemic but in the future, the crisis could be a man-made disaster, active threat, weather emergency, or something else.

Keeping staff informed is key to Business Continuity

 

An effective Emergency Notification System (ENS) provides staff with time-sensitive and direct communication, and assists in the continuity of mission-critical functions by ensuring that staff stay informed and stay safe. A two-way ENS that allows staff to report information back to central control further amplifies the efficacy of the system. Efficiency and speed are key, and the system should be simple to manage so that critical resources can focus on core tasks rather than managing a complicated ENS system.

Choosing the right ENS system can be confusing…but we’re offering a simple guide that helps outline what to look for, what questions to ask, and how to find the system that’s right for your institution’s needs.
