Keeping Calm in a Crisis
When you’re in a crisis situation, the need for swift action is paramount. It can be difficult to cut through the noise and keep management informed when the priority is solving the problem. What was originally an app for one company, has now grown to supply over 50,000 individual users with the security that they won’t be caught out if the worst happens.

In the case of an emergency, the incident response team are swiftly sent the relevant action plan and instructed to proceed in assisting employees caught up in the incident, and with oversight as to their potential position.
