Business Continuity International
Management is Critical
Command Center is ultimately a center for information management and decision
making. Its primary purpose is to gather and process all of the information
required to plan for and respond quickly and effectively to any potential
emergency. Inside the Command Center, incoming messages of all nature must be
gathered, categorized, processed logged and displayed in order to optimize
decision-making. As messages arrive, the information flows to analysts both
information technology specialists and business managers who make the
initial assessment as to whether the information that has arrived is indeed an
emergency incident. If and when they determine that
a disruption must be treated as an emergency incident, then the incident must be
posted to an Operations Log. With the incident established in the Operations
Log, your incident response gets underway with triage that determines the
priority and type of response. You must select the response and recovery plan
most appropriate to that incident. In the event that no plan for that incident
or location has been prepared, a plan with similar types of response activities
can be activated and modified. This plan should provide the guidance you will
need to apply appropriate response personnel and resources.
