Crisis managers need to be confident in their information

What’s burning? What’s flooding? Is that a new war breaking out? Did another ship get stuck in a canal? What’s with the vehicle attack downtown?

Was there actually an explosion in D.C.?

You need these answers. You need the history of events in the region. And you need a path to intelligence that doesn’t count on local operators making a phone call.

Factal helps continuity and resilience experts know those answers through our verified risk intelligence. That’s why Factal’s Director of Sales Mike Hilton will be at the 8th annual International Crisis Management Conference on Tuesday, June 6th in Newport, Rhode Island. Mike will be at Booth 2, you should say hello.

He’ll also be there because it’s a strong event where crisis leaders come away more informed about preparation strategies and mitigation theories.

“Rob (Burton) puts together a great agenda pulling in global thought leaders to discuss the major topics surrounding crisis management,” Hilton said. “The key to this great show is the highly respected attendees in a small setting with a thought-provoking moderator.”

One of the biggest gaps for businesses managing a crisis is gathering trusted information to create situational awareness. As more teams use risk intelligence to respond to “polycrisis”, Factal’s real-time vetted info keeps them focused. We’re right there in the room with the leaders of those teams at ICMC. That’s wonderful. It helps us learn what Factal members need to know, how they use the information and what we should be working on in the future.

That valuable face time with our members, our partners and even future members is why we are traveling more in 2023.

“And the venue doesn’t hurt either,” Hilton adds when asked about the picturesque Newport setting. Rhode Island in June is the right place to learn how to manage a crisis. If attendees have to step out to respond to one, Factal can help.
