Media and Communication Crisis Management | Business Continuity Planning




The media and communications sector is responsible for providing up-to-the-minute information to billions of people and managing the reputations of the world's biggest companies. Both of these functions are time critical and any delay in providing a 24/7 service to clients could prove disastrous to both the clients and the media and communications companies who have failed to provide the required level of service.

It is critical to the success of this industry that business operations are kept up and running at all times. A business disruption event of even a few minutes could cost the business and their customers millions of dollars as news stories and perceptions move against them. In such a 24/7 industry it is vital that business continuity planning is of the highest order and that effective disaster recovery arrangements are in place.

The media and communications industry relies on its normal channels of communications for day-to-day business, but when a critical event occurs then these channels may not be available to handle the crisis event. Buildings might be inaccessible, or IT systems might be down due to a power outage.

That is when an integrated, multi-channel, cloud-hosted communications platform comes into its own. Having a reliable critical communications system such as Crises Control in place can equip media and communications businesses with the integrated communications platform needed to reach out to their response teams and customers, handle the disruption and return to business as usual as quickly as possible.
