The Power of Playbooks

Playbooks come with prebuilt templates that offer teams step-by-step guidance on how to respond to a wide range of threats and events, such as cyberattacks, natural disasters, and third-party disruptions. These templates can be customized to fit the unique needs of any business, incorporating contact information for key stakeholders, protocols for employee and customer communications, and detailing the steps for restoring operations. They can be customized for any role, team, event type and just about every use case imaginable.

Custom and Pre-Built Playbook Templates

Build a library of playbooks and say goodbye to those old dusty ring binders. With just a few clicks, teams can easily create a collection of playbooks tailored for single roles or multiple teams, specific threat types, severity ratings, locations and activities.

Effortlessly manage response strategies by creating, merging, editing, duplicating, and filtering playbooks. This streamlined process ensures that the playbook library is always up-to-date and accessible when teams need it.

Easily Activate Playbooks on Gameday

Playbooks can be easily activated directly from Event Rooms, ensuring the right people and activities are brought in at the right time, to manage the situation. This process is simple and straightforward, allowing teams to easily access the tools they need, when they need them.

Once activated, playbooks will be visible and appear on the event room dashboard. This gives teams a snapshot of progress for each playbook, including the playbook owner, tasks, and status. With this information readily available, teams can keep their eye on the ball, not on the plan.

Playbooks are so simple to use, there’s no extensive training required. Whether the business is dealing with a real or simulated event, teams can activate Playbooks quickly and easily. Once activated, teams will have full access to the task and information boards, which allow them to update various details such as status, priority, task description, due dates, assignees, and documents.

When tasks are assigned to an individual, they’ll receive automatic notifications to keep them off the bench and in the game. And because Playbooks use templates, timelines will carry across automatically. Individuals can access all Playbooks via mobile devices, so they can stay connected and always-ready no matter where they are.
