The Covid-19 Risk Portal is available free of charge to all Risk Advisory SIAS clients and eligible organisations combatting the pandemic, including those involved in academic research and public bodies.

The Covid-19 Risk Portal provides:
- Curated high-quality real-time data feeds on publicly available Covid-19 data in a single platform, aggregating tens of thousands of data points
- A live feed of Risk Advisory’s high-quality SIAS intelligence reports, assessments and near real-time alerts related to Covid-19 worldwide
- An interactive live map of international and domestic travel restrictions and their impact on business activities, curated by Risk Advisory intelligence analysts
- A new country risk rating system of Covid-19 movement restrictions and their impact on business activity
- Risk Advisory’s live country risk ratings related to medical and health risks
Reflecting both Risk Advisory and WatchKeeper’s shared ethos of adaptive and innovative solutions driven by client requirements, the Covid-19 Risk Portal is designed to be evolutionary. The coronavirus pandemic is an extremely dynamic situation and as organisations face evolving challenges to respond, the Covid-19 Risk Portal will integrate new data sources and analytics to ensure users have the latest and best intelligence at their disposal.
Henry Wilkinson, Head of Intelligence & Analysis, Director of Risk Advisory, said; “The coronavirus pandemic has changed the world in a matter of weeks. It has presented leadership teams with some of the most difficult business decisions they have probably ever had to take. Never has timely high-quality intelligence and data been more important.
