Natural Hazards and Risk Assessment

Hurricane Winds on Beach

Natural hazards such as flood, drought, wildfire, earthquakes, and hurricanes can have a profound financial impact on a business. While such risks are hard to predict, they can be managed. Through a combination of innovative risk assessment, risk mitigation and risk transfer, Lynker Intel can help a company, agency, or growing operation exercise optimum control over its asset and business process exposures. Lynker Intel helps companies and agencies manage the risks associated with natural disaster by analyzing and modeling how an event can affect a single facility and then ripple through the enterprise’s operations. By qualifying and quantifying potential risks, we develop comprehensive plans for mitigating exposures and applying the appropriate operational, financial, and strategic risk management techniques.

Tornado Aftermath

Our strategic solutions include maximum foreseeable loss studies, corporate vulnerability assessments, insurance purchasing/risk transfer, captive insurance development, disaster recovery and emergency response planning, retrofit options such as building improvement, and site selection and acquisition. We use state-of-the-art computer modeling to analyze risks to property and business operations resulting from natural hazards. Our models draw on our own databases containing best available science and socio-economic data from leading federal and regional agencies, augmented by data created by Lynker Analytics, our data science affiliate. Our database contains historical and probability related information – and incorporates your buildings’ and operations’ specific characteristics – to determine your loss potentials.

Planning and Designing for Resilient and Green Infrastructure

Infrastructure and its networks will be affected by the physical impacts of climate variability and change but will also play an essential role in building resilience to those impacts. Lynker Intel can help you prioritize, plan, and design new or retrofit old infrastructure in a more thoughtful environmentally aligned (green) manner that can account for the climate and other changes that may occur over its lifetime.
