Everbridge for Risk and Compliance

How well does your incident communications system help demonstrate compliance?

Compliance, auditing, and regulatory requirements add another layer of complexity to your communications process. With Everbridge, you’ll not only have an incident notification system that can clearly and effectively deliver critical messages, you’ll have a full reporting on contact attempts and confirmations, showing you’re in compliance.

Risk & Compliance Use Cases

Regulatory Compliance Reporting

  • Acknowledgements. Request confirmation of receipt of important notices, such as policy changes, and measure incident response team response rates to emergencies and drills.
  • Regulatory agency visits. Alert and assemble employees when regulatory agencies are on-site to test compliance with communication requirements.
  • Reporting. Comply with regulatory obligations—such as NASD 3510, Sarbanes-Oxley, Joint Commission, NIMS, and HR employee accountability requirements—via automated communications with real-time confirmation data and full audit-trail reporting that includes a history of communications, delivery attempts, and acknowledgements from recipients.

Employee Protection and Life Safety

  • Safety alerts. Rapidly notify important contacts in minutes about product recalls, information security breaches, public safety issues, and other critical events.
  • Employee accountability. Generate personnel rosters in real time through polling to account for and report on the whereabouts and safety of employees.

Emergency Response and Management

  • Staff recall. Rapidly notify and assemble incident response teams.
  • Response team management. Use polling to determine people resource availability and reporting times. Leverage conference calls to brief the team and determine next steps.
  • Drills. Conduct unscheduled drills and exercises to improve incident response times, show team acknowledgement rates, and meet regulatory testing requirements.

Continuity of Operations

  • Situation updates. Provide ongoing status updates as an incident progresses and is resolved.
  • Policy changes. Alert employees to changes in policies and procedures.
  • Critical operations alerts. Show proof of ability for sustained communication to enable business continuity during a disaster or other incident.
