[VIDEO SERIES] How to create a Virtual Incident Response Center Using Webex: Part Two

[fa icon="calendar"] May 26, 2020 - Written by: Internetwork Engineering

Despite the ongoing pandemic and the resulting effects of COVID-19, companies must remain prepared to handle incidents at any given time. 

Have you developed a virtual incident response center for your company? Your team must have the capacity to respond to incidents in a timely matter. The right solution should be: 

  • Easy to use 
  • Quick to enable team collaboration 
  • Accessible from multiple device types, while still maintaining a secure and reliable meeting space 

Webex checks all of these boxes.  

Our first video covered the initial incident response request and scheduling the Webex Teams meeting. This session will discuss joining the Webex meeting from various locations and collaboratively annotating the IRC response document. Let's get started!

Part 2 IRC Video Script: 

Hello and welcome, Internetwork Engineering presents, How to Utilize Webex for a Virtual Incident Response Center.  


This is part 2 of a 4-part serie., This session is about joining the Webex meeting and annotating the IRC response document. 


In our previous session, we saw John send a Webex meeting invite to the team in preparation for everyone joining the meeting.


The IRC response team is scattered all over the state and they have connectivity via many different user platforms.  You will see John is at his office computer so he will join the Webex meeting from his laptop.

Until John joins the meeting you can see the other team members are placed in the lobby. Once John joins, they’re admitted to the meeting.  


Now that everyone is in the meeting, John will share the IRC Response document and each member will add their annotations to the shared document.  


You can see each member can choose a different color and style for their annotations.
