Welcome to the Media Resilience Scanner.
Analyze your risks and create your own crisis plan!

What is the Media Resilience Scanner?

The Media Resilience Scanner is a comprehensive online crisis preparation, management, and recovery tool for news organizations. It guides you step-by-step through the process of evaluating your risk exposure and planning for the risks your organization is likely to face.
The tool also gives guidance for managing crises as they occur, and assessing and addressing the residual risks to your
organization’s viability after major disruptions.
The Resilience Scanner is an easy way to identify risks and build a tailored crisis plan that works best for you and your staff.
