Webber Wentzel Alert is a web-based tool that helps launch an automated emergency response at the click of a button to quickly mobilise the right people and expert advisors into action.
Webber Wentzel Alert ensures that a pre-identified group of individuals (internal and external) are notified of the raid / breach / inspection / incident and at what site (business premises). It also provides best practice customised guidelines and checklists to ensure that the business response is legally compliant and organisationally aligned.
In our experience, quick and considered responses can mitigate some of the serious consequences of non-compliance. Unpacking some of the common risks where the Webber Wentzel Alert tool can make a considerable difference:
- Data breaches - data breaches are on the increase, particularly cyber-attacks or hacking. Data is increasingly being regulated too.
- Dawn raids - Regulator raids by tax and competition authorities are always a possibility. There is also an uptick of unexpected arrivals by special crime investigation units like the Hawks.
- Environmental incidents - The department of environmental affairs also inspects premises for non-compliance and has an environmental crimes and an incidents hotline.
- Workplace inspections and incident response - Workplace inspections are also common. These inspections have increased since Covid-19 struck in 2020. Employers must also ensure that reportable incidents are appropriately managed and reported in order to ensure compliance with health and safety laws.
