Optional Extras

Emergency Notification (Bullhorn):

  • Enables administrators to send emergency notifications and surveys to internal contacts via email, text message, or voice phone call – all from just one screen.
  • Provides the option to record custom audio messages (instead of using text to speech), and can post the message to the organisation’s hotline with just one click.
  • Built-in to Castellan, so no third-party contracts are required.


  • Business continuity, information security, compliance, and risk management program managers (among others)must address a wide range of standards, best practices, and regulatory requirements, as well as address any vulnerabilities that might affect the ability to meet stakeholder expectations.
  • To help alleviate the stress of juggling so many requirements, the Castellan Control+Comply module helps organise, assess, and manage what we’ve termed “families of controls” to address not only best practices, individual standards, and requirements, but also multiple overlapping obligations common in today’s risk landscape. Through documenting controls and managing testing conclusions, and based on threat and vulnerability assessments, Castellan summarises compliance obligations in the most pragmatic manner possible and provides meaningful and actionable insights into your organisation’s risk level, maturity, and compliance status with the ability to tailor results to multiple audiences.
