The Firestorm Methodology
Firestorm differentiates itself from other business continuity and crisis management service providers with its unique PREDICT.PLAN.PERFORM.® process which is the foundation for a next-generation suite of consulting services, tools and software to create resilient, disaster-ready organizations.
Firestorm’s approach is to support senior management in the critical decision process to meet an organization’s fiduciary and governance responsibilities. This involvement accomplishes buy-in and active support of the overall planning process and, more importantly, facilitates coordination in the event of a crisis situation. Increasing awareness and obtaining agreement on the vulnerabilities, decision criteria, action plans, coordination, as well as execution, is critical to the success of any disaster mitigation planning process.
