Readify will use its proprietary HVA application to assess an organization’s vulnerabilities, identify hazards and threats, conduct a hazard impact analysis and develop and manage the comprehensive hazard mitigation plan. This service is provided year-round and includes an annual subscription to ReadifyRM.
