Origami Risk Featured in Continuity Insurance & Risk Magazine

In line with Origami’s recent expansion to the UK and EMEA, an article written by Neil Scotcher, a senior leader at Origami Risk, was published, in the Jan-Feb 2020 issue of Continuity, Insurance & Risk (CIR) Magazine, a UK report for risk management, commercial insurance, and business continuity professionals.

The article, A solution to data silos, examines how isolated clusters of data contributes to an inability to see the big picture.
