An Emergency Notification System (ENS) is a robust tool to use in a crisis, but only in certain situations where conditions are appropriate.

This research note discusses:

  • The technology and business drivers behind emergency notification. 
  • How emergency notification fits into the broader business continuity perspective. 
  • Leading ENS vendors. 
  • Some pitfalls surrounding ENS adoption and deployment. 
  • Key issues to keep in mind when considering ENS adoption.

Like most risk management technologies, ENS requires a careful assessment of organizational needs and environmental factors. Know the issues at hand before exploring the potential of ENS.
