From compliance to resilience: Navigating the new landscape of critical infrastructure protection with Everbridge

By Eric Boger, Everbridge Vice President Risk Intelligence

The recent National Security Memorandum (NSM) on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience issued by the White House on April 30, 2024, outlines a strategic approach to safeguarding critical infrastructure against emerging threats and enhancing resilience.  

This NSM updates an 11-year-old presidential policy that underscores the importance of collaboration between US government agencies and private sector partners. It emphasizes a shared responsibility in mitigating risks and ensuring uninterrupted delivery of essential services, renewing the focus on protecting infrastructure assets. 

With Everbridge, your organization can leverage an advanced risk management and communication platform to support the objectives outlined in the NSM.  Providing real-time monitoring, automated alerting, and robust incident response capabilities, our solutions enable you to effectively identify and address potential threats, coordinate response efforts, and communicate crucial information during emergencies.

According to the NSM, “Federal, State, local, Tribal, and territorial regulatory and oversight entities have a responsibility to prioritize establishing and implementing minimum requirements for risk management, including those requirements that address sector-specific and cross-sector risks.” Everbridge critical event management (CEM) solutions provide minimum requirements and beyond for your organization to be compliant with policies and enhance your security and resilience.
