    New laws and guidelines around the world have gotten tougher on companies that don’t report customer data breaches to the proper authorities.

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.
