For every type of situation that requires your security team's intervention, you can define a Genetec Mission Control™ incident. An incident type is an entity that represents a situation that requires specific actions to resolve it. The incident type entity can also be used to automate the incident detection in Mission Control and to enforce the standard operating procedures that your security team must follow.
