"ICS was originally developed for public sector emergency response and disaster management, and quickly became an accepted standard," said Malcolm Hafner, CEO of MissionMode. "Now, corporations are discovering the significant benefits of implementing ICS. This event builds upon the success of our previous webinar, "Five Disciplines of Organizational Resilience," and participants will gain practical knowledge they can apply to their teams and processes."
Private sector organizations adopting the ICS approach are realizing benefits such as:
> Faster, more efficient response
> Better-informed decision-makers and team members
> Fewer power struggles
> Integration with your regional/local response systems
> Meeting regulatory agency Command and Control requirements
The ICS approach can be used for incidents of any type, scope and complexity. It has applications in Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Crisis / Incident Management, Enterprise Risk Management, Continuity of Operations (COOP), and more. ICS can fulfill the Command and Control requirements of EPA's RMP (Risk Management Program and OSHA's PSM (Program Safety Management).
