Crisis or Consequence Management – A Firestorm 2016 Forum 1st in Series
|In today’s instant media and digital landscape, how much time do you have to respond to a risk or threat? None. You must identify these threats before they become crises. Your company’s exposures are unique. Your intelligence network design must be customized to address your identified risk profile. Intelligence is not a just a Google search or a single piece of information. Waiting until it is too late is not an option. Your Leadership must know BEFORE NOW, not afterwards.|
In this webinar, Firestorm President, COO and Co-Founder, Jim Satterfield, reviews crisis lessons learned in 2015 and the difference between crisis and consequence management.

Monitoring can be used to track threat trends, emerging trends in student use and employee use and misuse. But before you monitor, you must assess. Schools that have adopted social media without a social media assessment and a clear risk monitoring plan and are at risk.

This assessment covers regulatory agency guidance, rules and regulations with regard to social media use including: Student risk, teacher and employee use risk, compliance & legal risk, account takeover, due diligence, oversight, control, reputation risk, fraud & brand Identity, 3rd party contractor risk, inappropriate postings and school threat analysis.

Workplace violence can often be unforeseen, but it may often be the ultimate outcome of continued issues involving employees and/or management. There are steps to take to prevent workplace violence and to protect employees. Having a system to report workplace violence threats, or tell-tale signs of such is one way that organizations can intervene before a situation culminates into a full, violent incident.
