Standards & assessment
Organizations are eligible for Best in Resilience™ Certification after completing the CEM Certification Assessment. The assessment evaluates organizations using Everbridge’s CEM Standards Framework™ which is based on 20 years of best practice insight in Critical Event Management.
The CEM Certified Standards Framework™ provides the structure to evaluate:
CEM system configuration
Is the CEM system in place fully configured? Are the organization’s core settings optimized for resilience? Does the CEM system cover all people, technology, facilities, and operations?
CEM skills development
Have the full set of necessary skills been identified? Are the right people provided with the training needed to be successful? Are those people properly accessible? What level of resilience maturity is being achieved?
CEM business alignment
Are key areas of the business covered by the CEM system? Are the appropriate procedures and SLAs in place to maintain business continuity? How does resilience impact financial performance?
“CEM has improved our efficiency by leaps and bounds. It’s transformed how we operate.”
