Some time has passed since the Hawaii missile alert crisis, and though the discussion following the aftermath has settled, there is still a lot to learn from the incident. The scale of the event and fallout set a new precedent for incident management systems and emergency notification systems, and our team at MissionMode thought we’d take a closer look.
There’s a Lot to Learn
When disaster happens elsewhere, it can make you sit up and take notice of your own practices and policies and wonder if you’re open to similar vulnerabilities. It can also be just as easy to write it off as a mishap that would never occur in your business, maybe a cautionary tale you don’t need to heed. One of the biggest things this particular crisis taught us is that no matter how sound you believe your business continuity practices are, there is always room for improvement. It put a spotlight on why assessing and reassessing your policies, procedures, and critical documentation is so important.
Don’t let what happened in Hawaii happen to you – there are plenty of things you can do to make sure your business continuity practices, incident management, and emergency notification systems are up to the latest and greatest standards and set up in a way that avoids situations like this ever occurring. Having the right structures in place is crucial to getting back on your feet, fast. Not sure where to start?
