Don’t let a T-Rex ruin your process

We’re pretty sure using a real incident to test a new response process is not the best idea. So, how do you test your process ahead of time?

In this video, FireHydrant CEO, Robert Ross, shared how our customers leverage best practices to break, mitigate, resolve, and fireproof incident processes. He shares a great reminder that:

people mitigated incidents, not processes

  2. How you communicate an incident - internally and externally
  3. When and if you should escalate an incident to your stakeholders
