Control Risks and Everbridge form major alliance

Introducing a specialty CEM practice based on the Everbridge technology platform will enhance and expand our security risk and crisis management consulting capabilities, providing clients with unprecedented readiness, response, and recovery during a critical event. Everbridge will also be able to introduce their clients to our expert consultants, complementing their software, to offer a true end-to-end service.”

The two companies are also understood to be looking at integrating the Control Risks CORE risk monitoring toolkit and the Everbridge CEM platform, providing customers with a common view of operations for clients’ GSOCs and intelligence operations centres. This includes correlating incident data against company assets, including people, infrastructure and supply chains; providing real-time, tactical intelligence for situational awareness and informed decision-making; and automating contingency plans.
