To manage incidents effectively using Genetec Mission Control™, it is recommended to understand the existing system and to evaluate the current challenges.
Considerations for incident configuration
- What types of incidents need to be handled?
- What are the most frequent incidents?
- Do they include system generated events, such as Access denied events and so on?
- Do they include
For example: public demonstrations and so on.
- What types of alarms need to be handled?
- What are the most frequent alarms?
- What are the most frequent alarms used for?
- What are the challenges with false alarms?
- Are false alarms too numerous?
- What physical security systems are currently in place?
- Do they include access control units?
- How is intrusion detected? Are there third party systems are in place for intrusion detection?
- What are the other security systems currently in place?
- Do events from third-party applications need to be used with the Genetec Mission
Control™ Rules Engine?
For example, results of external analytic software as triggers for incidents and so on?
- Are there incident procedures in place?
- How are the existing incident procedures managed?
- Are there incidents that require collaboration from multiple teams?
- Do incident resolution procedures need to be monitored by a supervisor?
- What actions are taken to resolve an incident?

- Are there documents associated with alarms, events or incidents?
For example: emergency contact information, contact information for maintenance procedures, security teams, and so on.
- Are the users of the system role-based? Do incident procedures require flow of control from one user to another?
- Are incident reports currently generated? What aspects of an incident are deemed imperative to have in an incident report?
- How is incident response efficiency currently measured?
