    Executives do not like surprises, especially when they come from angry customers or the media. And no one likes surprise calls from an angry CEO. It’s a bad career move. Proactive communication can help executives to be better spokespeople for the company during disruptions, and keep them off your back at the same time.

Major IT incidents and business disruptions occur at every company. When they do, specialized procedures kick in to restore service as quickly as possible. The IT service desk initiates IT’s response by alerting major incident managers, who assemble a major incident resolution team and get to work.

But restoration and resolution are only the tip of the major incident communication iceberg. Really effective major incident communication reaches out to a host of other people inside and outside the organization to share information, receive help, keep people up to date and prevent further interruptions.

In this slideshow, Abbas Haider Ali, CTO, xMatters, Inc., outlines eight important people to connect with outside the resolution process.
