Continuity Insights Management Conference

Your organization faces multiple risks every day, from disgruntled ex-employees planning revenge, to a Pacific cyclone delaying vital supply chain shipments, and a host of threats in between. Without a strong set situational awareness tools and policies, you face a tsunami of disjointed information that can cause you to miss important indicators and mismanage your response.

Corporate Situational Awareness: Watch Your Front!, a newly release white paper produced by Swan Island Networks, defines situational awareness, provides examples of situational awareness, outlines threat categories that you need to prepare for, details common mistakes around enterprise situational awareness efforts and presents best practices for building a strong situational awareness capability.

Perception, comprehension, and projection are three of the core definitional terms of situational awareness. Situational awareness at its core is having an accurate understanding of your surroundings: where you are, what could happen, and recognizing problem indicators before an incident.

Once a threat manifests, knowing what happened, what is happening now, where critical resources stand, and what is changing all become part of an intense effort to understand and communicate with response efforts. Paying attention to the risks, threats, contingencies, and response capability available to you is key and should start with a proactive effort.

Corporate Situational Awareness: Watch Your Front! is now available from Swan Island Networks as a free download here.
