[VIDEO SERIES] How to Create a Virtual Incident Response Center Using Webex: Part One



The COVID-19 Pandemic has tested companies on a global scale in their work-from-home environments. This has been especially true for companies that have quickly adopted collaboration solutions to ensure that when an emergency incident occurs, they can bring together their Incident Response Team (IR) members to promptly handle the situation 


Whether it is a pandemic causing immediate closings of your physical locations, an active shooter on a campus, inclement weather, or cyberthreats, lacking the right collaboration tools to empower your team to easily share information and increase time to resolution shouldn’t be one more issue to deal with during a crisis.  


Has your team created a virtual incident response center? If not, watch the first video in our series to see how you can use Webex Teams to overcome common IR challenges like delayed responses because of staff visibility and improper escalation. 


This session will cover the initial incident response request and scheduling the Webex Teams meeting. Enjoy!
