RedSky Launches Updated E911 Risk Assessment Tool

Free, Online E911 Risk Assessment provides recommendations to help protect organizations from liability

CHICAGO, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Does your organization manage E911 location information accurately so emergency responders know where to find a 9-1-1 caller in need? Do you operate in states with laws requiring E911 protection for employees, students and visitors? If you have questions about your organization's E911 liability risk, RedSky Technologies has launched Version 2.0 of its popular online E911 Risk Assessment tool to help enterprise telecommunications and risk management professionals find answers.

The new, enhanced version of this free, no obligation E911 Risk Assessment can be taken online at www.e911-risk-assessment.com. The assessment captures basic information about an organization and highlights potential risk across four dimensions: network configuration, workforce mobility and infrastructure, legislation and location complexity, and industry and security requirements. The RedSky E911 Risk Assessment has helped hundreds of organizations evaluate their E911 risk since it was first launched in 2007. Version 2.0 has been updated to reflect the increasing mobility of enterprise network users and the accelerated adoption of IP, SIP and Wi-Fi technology. The new E911 Risk Assessment also incorporates the latest changes to E911 legislation across the country.

"Many organizations don't realize the potential liability risk they face by not managing E911 location information properly," says Nick Maier, senior vice president of RedSky. "With our updated E911 Risk Assessment, taking three minutes to answer a few, simple diagnostic questions can lead to significant insight into an organization's risk profile and the free report offers detailed suggested actions for mitigating that risk."

Designed for an organization's telecom and IT management as well as corporate risk management and security directors, the E911 Risk Assessment is based on RedSky's 17 years of experience helping organizations from the Fortune 500 to small and mid-size businesses manage their E911 liability risk and protect employees, students and visitors.
