Operationalize critical information

Managing and operationalizing critical information involves aligning software tools with your organization's people, mission, and data. Focusing on the power of location to identify threats and manage risk can help ensure operational readiness.  Leverage geographical information system (GIS) technology as the tested and proven platform that can streamline the complex business requirements and workflows of security operations.  Collect, understand, operationalize and share information that informs decision making and protects your most critical assets.
