Risk & Resilience Hub

The mission of the Risk & Resilience Hub is to bring together all the disciplines that impact and support the resilience of an organization into an online platform to facilitate connection and collaboration.

The HUB includes 3 main sections:

  • 1. Vetted content which includes blogs, surveys, research and thought leadership
  • 2. A directory of products, services and resources
  • 3. A community platform that provides membership with member wall and profile, private and public groups, blog posts and forums

The HUB is a "work in process". It will grow and develop through engagement and involvement of a community committed to the exchange of information and ideas and will lead to resilience in businesses, organizations and agencies.

At launch, content on the HUB will be organized in six categories that cover ALL content areas.

We want your opinion on the "sub-categories". How do we cover ALL the important issues in these six categories? Tell us the sub-categories that could get us started. These categories will be especially helpful for community interactions – blog posts and the forum.

Don’t hold back. Tell us what you think. Send your ideas to: publisher@disaster-resource.com
