This accreditation assures that the Everbridge Critical Event Management platform has undergone a rigorous third-party audit to ensure it complies with all security requirements defined by C5.

Using Everbridge’s C5 audit report, customers can effortlessly evaluate how legal regulations (e.g. data privacy), their own policies, or the threat environment relate to their use of the Everbridge platform.
Javier Colado, Senior Vice President, International at Everbridge, commented, “Everbridge is fully committed to the highest standards in all aspects of our operations no matter where that might be in the world. We are proud to be the first U.S.-based critical event management provider to meet the stringent C5 compliance requirements – something that should increase the trust placed in us by our growing client base not only in Germany, but also around the world.”
C5 is intended primarily for professional cloud service providers, and their auditors and customers. It has 17 distinct control requirements that cloud providers either have to comply with or meet defined minimum standards. It is a required assessment for working with the public sector in Germany and is increasingly being adopted by the private sector.
