Risk Assessment

Appears in the issue.

CAP Index, Inc., of Exton, Pennsylvania, has launched RedFlag 2.0, a comprehensive risk assessment tool that helps companies evaluate possible hazards from natural disasters, crime, terrorism, and other threatening scenarios. Originally developed by Sandia National Laboratories to assess risk in federal facilities, the new version was extended and expanded for the private sector, so security practitioners can evaluate relative risk and vulnerability at a wide variety of properties. The tool generates a complete report of possible threats in less than 90 minutes. It encompasses sets of rules, equations, and scoring metrics that combine user input, expert opinion, and empirical data to calculate a building’s relative risk, based on decades of historical information, government sources, and the CAP Index’s CRIME­CAST system.
