CRISIS CLOUD – CRISIS SIMULATION EXERCISE MEDIA WEB PORTAL
Crisis Cloud is cutting edge web technology that simulates real world communications during a crisis simulation or crisis exercise. It’s been designed in conjunction with our IT specialists to enhance the player experience and the learning of the teams.
CREATING REALITY AND CONNECTING PARTICIPANTS IN CRISIS SIMULATION exercises
Traditional exercises rely on telephones, but in the real world we now communicate in myriads of ways. Crisis Cloud provides dynamic, interactive web pages, simulated news videos and social media.
To log on all you need is a broadband connection. Players can take part in the crisis exercise from their offices across the corridor or across continents.
Participants in the crisis simulation exercises are provided with password-protected access to the platform, giving you confidence your exercise won’t leak into the real world.
Prior to an exercise all the news stories and tweets are pre-programmed to pour in as the exercise progresses. As in real life some of the social media activity is just white noise but contained therein are important pieces of information that the players will need to asses.
Crisis Solutions’ journalists will be phoning participants and updating news stories as the simulation exercises progress.
Similarly, players can put out internal messages to staff and external messages to journalists and other stakeholders. Thus providing an excellent audit trail after the event.
Crisis Cloud is constantly being updated with new features by our IT consultants.
CRISIS CLOUD – YOUR SCENARIO, OUR REALISM
Crisis Cloud is tailored to your specific exercise requirements, but a typical example will include:
- News stories based on the scenario. Stories are updated as the crisis exercise progresses
- News videos to bring the immediacy of media scrutiny
- Client pages for internal and external statements
- A Twitter inspired social media page that is accessible to players and updated in real time
