Incidents happen…

An employee is being threatened by a colleague. An employee at a remote location has activated a panic alarm. A competitor has gained access to proprietary company research. The CEO’s office door was left unlocked… and his laptop is missing.

You need to deal with these incidents while they’re happening, and you need to document the who, what, when and where of these incidents for future reference.

The Building Blocks

The starting point for all four Perspective editions is the Perspective Platform where the software’s core functionality resides. It includes:

With this solid foundation in place, the other four ‘building blocks’ are based on the event types managed by Perspective:

These five building blocks come together in various combinations to form the Perspective editions: Perspective AIR; Perspective SOC; Perspective ICM; and Perspective EIM.

In Relation to the Incident Management Process

Perspective is also structured around the incident management process:

  1. Plan & Prepare
  2. Respond
  3. Document
  4. Investigate

With Perspective, you can cover all four stages of this process, or you can narrow it down based on the event types you need to manage.

Ultimately, the edition you need (Perspective AIR, Perspective SOC, Perspective ICM, or Perspective EIM) relates to which part of the incident management process you need to cover.
