Everbridge to present at Safer Cities Summit within International Security Expo and International Disaster Response 2018

Everbridge, the developer of critical event management and enterprise safety software applications designed to help keep people safe and businesses running, has announced an exclusive partnership with the Safer Cities Summit, the opening briefing at the International Security Expo and International Disaster Response 2018 running at London’s Olympia on 28-29 November. The company’s chief marketing officer Joel Rosen will present at the Safer Cities Summit, drawing on Everbridge’s vast experience of helping cities and countries around the world to prepare for – and deal effectively with – critical events.

Everbridge will exhibit on Stand H81 under the theme ‘Keeping People Safe and Operations Running’ and support several programmes throughout the two days. The company will demonstrate how its Critical Event Management (CEM) platform, which is used to communicate with employees and the general population, allows response teams to automate and manage the lifecycle of incidents ranging from extreme weather events right through to cyber attacks.

The platform works by assessing the situation, locating those in harm’s way, acting (by using incident templates to trigger automated messages) and then analysing the results to produce action reports that can underpin enhanced decision-making.

Everbridge introduced the next generation of its CEM platform last month and International Security Expo will be the first time that the company’s powerful visualisation and orchestration capabilities will have been shown in Europe.

The company is also involved in the following scheduled events at the Expo:

Protecting Urban Spaces: Command and Control Rooms

Live demonstrations on a daily basis of the CEM platform for location-based nationwide alerting and CEM for employee safety

Facilities Management Conference

28 November at 10.55 am: Keynote presentation under the heading ‘Attackers have entered your building: where are your staff and are they safe?’ by Philip Pate, director of Everbridge

International Disaster Response Expo

28 November at 1.15 pm: Theatre 6 Workshop. Providing a co-ordinated response can reduce the impact of a disaster and save lives. Drawing on recent events and major natural disasters such as Hurricane Irma, this discussion will explore the technology for delivering over 20 million messages on behalf of state and local Governments, including the state-wide emergency notification initiative in Florida. Presented by Joel Rosen (chief marketing officer at Everbridge)

“We have a packed schedule of events taking place within the two Expos,” commented Kirsty Grant, EMEA marketing specialist at Everbridge. “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to demonstrate the breadth of our solutions and how Everbridge works to provide an ‘assess, locate, act and analyse’ closed loop approach towards managing critical events.”
