What is Event Response?

Event Response is a key process within any business continuity or incident management program. It refers to the planning and execution activities involved in an organization’s reaction to any event that impacts their operations, service or functions.

If you’re tasked with handling your company’s Event Response plan, consider yourself a superhero: when disaster strikes, you’re the one swooping in. Superheroes, however, are only as good as their sidekicks. LogicManager’s Event Response solution package is the perfect sidekick to help with all your business continuity and incident management needs.

Risks

Here are just a few ways risks can materialize when you forego having a mature Event Response plan in place:

  • Maintaining a comprehensive BCP is very resource intensive without the right software; employees’ valuable time and energy are spent manually carrying out administrative tasks instead of focusing on achieving long-term, strategic goals. In these instances, potential is being thwarted.
  • If you’re not prepared following disaster, you may not be able to fix interruptions in your critical lines of business. This can lead to severe financial impacts.
  • A lack of preparedness and subsequent revenue loss can decrease stakeholder and consumer trust. Lower market valuations and customer retention rates lead to – once again – negative financial impacts.
  • Should there be any form of legal charges brought against you, you’ll have no defense if you’re unable to prove that there was anything you could do to prevent the event from happening in the first place.
  • Immediately following an event, it’s critical to track remediation efforts to provide a paper trail for future auditors and regulators (and most importantly, to ensure you do not make the same mistake twice).

Formalize your Disaster Management Process with LogicManager

Create relationships and increase visibility

Link any event that occurs to the departments it’s affecting. This then allows you to easily see all of the events that have affected any particular department, helping you gain additional visibility into those critical business functions.

Gain a GRC partner

Since LogicManager is a GRC platform, you’ll be able to see interdependencies across all areas of your organization as you work. If a particular vendor or application is identified as the root cause of an event, see just how far that impact spread across the enterprise.

Automate your processes

Our workflow engine allows you to automate a response action plan to ensure the correct teams are made aware of the event and take the appropriate action. Designate responsibility, set reminders and due dates and understand exactly what occurred and what was impacted. This also provides an audit trail of your efforts.

LogicManager’s Disaster Management Solution

LogicManager’s Event Response solution package is designed to enhance both your business continuity and incident management programs. Here’s how:

  •  Use an Event Response form to log any internal or external events, from outages, to natural disasters, to pandemics and more. This enables you to track all details of the event, including the outcome and overall impact on your business.
  • Maintain a centralized repository to easily access and review a list of central events that have occurred at your organization. This helps you identify trends and uncover root cause and systemic issues.
  • Break down silos and tackle incidents quickly through our secure webform, which allows employees to report on an event as soon as it happens. This standing URL link can be shared on an intranet or company website so that it’s accessible to all relevant parties.
  • Our Core Processes library helps you easily retrieve your most up-to-date documented BCP so that you’re not scrambling to locate it in the midst of a crisis. 
  • LogicManager’s reporting tools allow you to export reports for leadership or other teams to provide an overview of events, show trends and weaknesses and departmental impacts. Some examples include:
    • Incident Narrative report: This allows you to choose one event and provide a narrative overview with relevant information.
    • Incident dashboard: Display a dashboard style report to present a more graphical view of your events. 

Task reports: See the status of outstanding tasks that relate to a particular event and easily identify any overdue tasks that need to be completed, ensuring the appropriate steps are always being completed following an event.
