Thank You for a Record Year!
2022 was a record year for us, and everyone at DisasterAWARE Enterprise wants to thank you for helping us achieve a great 2022. Without our customers, partners, and friends, we would not be where we are today. We wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past year and check out a few highlights from 2022!
Pacific Disaster Center and DisasterAWARE Receive Prestigious UN Award
On May 25, 2022, our partner and sister company, the Pacific Disaster Center, was awarded the first prize of the United Nations Sasakawa Award for Disaster Risk Reduction during the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) in Bali, Indonesia, a reward given every three years to individuals or organizations “that have made substantive impact in reducing disaster risk.”

DisasterAWARE Enterprise returns to GSX 2022 in Atlanta!
It was wonderful to be back at GSX after a 2-year COVID hiatus! The Georgia World Congress Center was bustling during the week of September 11th, and we connected with hundreds of our customers and partners at our booth and in the many receptions held in the area. There were many exciting meetings around all things security, and two topics seemed to be top of mind with many of the folks we met with:
1) Climate change is causing significant security threats for large and small companies as natural catastrophes are more frequent and severe than ever.
2) To drive better ROI, organizations are looking at ways to inventory and consolidate their security tooling and associated SOPs.
Here at DisasterAWARE Enterprise, we’ve been delivering proactive modeled risk intelligence in near real-time, driving the best possible business outcomes for the security sector. We’re already looking forward to GSX 2023 in Dallas.
Enhanced global automated flood and landslide detection
In April, we announced our partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Goddard Space Flight Center, providing DAE customers with more accurate and automated flood and landslide hazards. We hope you noticed the more significant number of flood hazards and the faster speed at which they have been updated in DAE since its implementation. Check out more details on this partnership here!
Enhanced Reports are here!
See the impact on your locations! With our convenient and customized reports, understand the specific impact of a hazard on your assets with key metrics, projected path, and customized branding in our enhanced reports, introduced earlier this year! Check out the details here!
DisasterAWARE Enterprise adds the Meteorological Service of Canada as a Data Source
Over the summer, DAE added a new data source to our resilience engine to bring you more hazards within our neighbor the north. We added the Meteorological Service of Canada as a data source, bringing in more data and more weather hazards into DisasterAWARE Enterprise. We hope that these additional hazard alerts have helped protect your assets and we are always looking for ways to improve our hazard generation and alerts’ breath, speed, and accuracy. Stay tuned for more enhancements in 2023!
