IDV Solutions Partners with the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center

Visual Command Center to help mitigate the impact of risk events

Lansing, MI — September 17, 2014

IDV Solutions, LLC today announced a partnership with the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) to provide its enterprise risk visualization software, Visual Command Center, for use in ITDRC’s new National Disaster Relief Coordination Center (NDRCC).  This will help ITDRC assess and respond faster to risk events that impact communities across the nation.

ITDRC is a nationwide, non-profit organization that provides emergency communications and technology resources to help communities continue operations and recover from disaster. The team is comprised of technology volunteers from many disciplines who provide no cost Information and Communications Technology (ICT) resources, technical assistance, and public education to help build disaster resilient communities.

The ITDRC Disaster Response Team usually arrives within 24 hours of an event, and remains deployed for 3-6 weeks to facilitate resources for Long Term Recovery. Once the Response Team demobilizes, ongoing support is transitioned to local volunteers, or the Remote Response Team. ITDRC has served areas affected by hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, wildfires and other large scale disasters.

Enterprise Risk Visualization is an actionable approach to risk management that visualizes risk in the context of operations in order to drive better decision-making.  IDV’s Visual Command Center is enterprise risk visualization software that monitors potential threats and alerts organizations about these threats to their people, assets and operations and provides tools to assess and take action to eliminate or mitigate risk.

IDV began working with the ITDRC earlier this year to help improve their situational awareness capabilities.   Having access to Visual Command Center allows regional directors to continually monitor major weather systems and other significant national events that could require on-site deployment of ITDRC resources.

“IDV has graciously provided us with access to a world class suite of tools and team of subject matter experts, which has completely changed the way we monitor events,” said Joe Hillis, Operations Director of ITDRC.  “With VCC, we have the ability to visualize live data from multiple sources in real time, enabling us to understand the common operating picture and make deployment decisions based on ground truth.  This partnership is huge for us, and we’re honored to have the IDV Solutions team in our corner.”

“We are pleased to be able to partner with an organization like ITDRC that is providing much needed support for communities around the country that are impacted by risk events and natural disasters,” said Mark Morrison, CEO of IDV Solutions. “Our technology will help them identify these events sooner and provide valuable information to mitigate the impact of these disasters on communities so they can recover quicker.”
