Visual Command Center 3.1 is enterprise risk visualizations software that empowers organizations to protect their people, facilities, and operations against real or potential threats and ensure business continuity. It monitors real-time risk events such as acts of terrorism, weather, hazardous materials, as well as data from other sources, such as Web feeds or internal and external systems including physical security devices. When a risk is detected near an asset or employee location, Visual Command Center automatically generates an alert. Version 3.1 adds powerful severe weather visualization, social media monitoring and Cyber Attack alerts from US-CERT.
A new feature of the system is Twitter Alerting. It works with Visual Command Center’s Twitter Visualization tool, which enables users to monitor social media for pre-programmed threats, such as “terrorism” or “bomb,” and to perform ad hoc searches for words or phrases that might alert an organization to an emerging threat and give an operations team critical extra seconds to assess and act to protect its people. Alert notifications are displayed in Visual Command Center or delivered via e-mail or mass notification systems.
