If it’s your job to protect your company’s people, assets, and operations, what’s the most valuable thing you can have at your fingertips? Experienced managers tend to boil it down to actionable intelligence – confidence in the facts on the ground.
But to be actionable, that intelligence must be not only comprehensive, accurate, and timely; it must be relevant to your situation.
With so much at stake, managers err on the side of collecting as much data as possible: no head of security wants to miss something important. They typically have some combination of human analysts and technology providing a steady stream of reports. The consequence of this approach is that global operations centers are peppered with alerts, many of them irrelevant. Data overload can be as paralyzing as not knowing. Your ability to effectively anticipate and respond requires that you isolate those events that affect your world – and filter out the rest.
The sheer volume of information available today makes this job of filtering data especially tough. Tracking the proliferation of news about critical events that could impact your company has grown beyond the capacity of humans to analyze. Even if you had the resources, throwing more people at the problem won’t result in a clearer picture. To be actionable, every critical event needs to be understood in the context of your company footprint: the whereabouts of your people and the movement of your products and materials.
At any moment in time, a map of the world is dotted with events of local, regional, or international significance. Each of these events matters to somebody, but not necessarily you. An event is critical to your operation only to the degree that it impacts your people, places, or pipeline. Big events get big coverage. But a hyper-local event like a gas leak or street protest could be far more consequential if it’s happening near one of your facilities.
Stabilitas recognizes the importance of critical event coverage: our purpose-built artificial intelligence (AI) platform ingests more than 15,000 sources of structured and unstructured data. But consolidating that global data is just the first step. To refine it into actionable intelligence, our Critical Event Intelligence pipeline follows a seven-step process:
That seven-part pipeline describes a global process by which raw data becomes a consumable event profile. But that event profile may or may not be relevant to your unique footprint of people and assets. To address that last requirement, Stabilitas AI overlays the lat/long of events with the location of your employees, travelers, facilities, and designated vehicles. This is correlation – the linchpin of actionable intelligence. To bring that to life, let’s look at a typical map of events around the world.
This first view shows the universe of critical events happening at a given moment in time. But your job is not to save the world; it’s to protect your people, assets, and operations. This unfiltered view doesn’t help.
Example: 12,451 Events
This next view shows all critical events with a severity of high or critical. Noise is reduced but not all of these events apply to you. Actionability is still a step away.
This final view takes that subset of severe events and correlates them with your assets uploaded into the Stabilitas platform. Finally, you have actionable intelligence: you know precisely what’s happening where as well as who and what is affected.
21 is a vastly more manageable number of events to track and monitor than 12,451. Stabilitas provides you and your team with the ability to focus on just those events which might impact you, your employees, travelers, assets, facilities, operations, suppliers and key customers. Stabilitas fuses broad coverage with unparalleled speed to bring you the most accurate, actionable picture of your world. Through the Stabilitas platform you can provide instructions to your response team and issue alerts to affected people on the ground.
By leveraging Stabilitas AI you can minimize the impact of critical events on your employees, facilities, and assets. Stabilitas is the trusted platform for critical event intelligence, providing unmatched speed, coverage, and actionability.
