Prepare for tomorrow by checking your risk today. The Risk Self-Assessment Tool (RSAT) is a free, web-based tool that delivers an all-hazard analysis of a facility’s current risk level and offers options for consideration on reducing and managing potential vulnerabilities. The self-assessment allows public assembly and lodging venues to identify and prioritize where security measures, procedures, or staff training might be needed to provide a safe and secure venue for employees and guests.

How the RSAT Works
The RSAT uses data input by the facility in combination with threat and consequence estimates to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment. With only a short time commitment, the assessment can provide options for consideration to improve the security posture of your facility.
The tool develops risk information by dividing the data collection and analysis into three distinct areas:
- Venue characterization, which requires input of the facility, including its major uses, size, and capacity;
- Threat evaluation of the facility security against both natural and manmade hazards; and
- A catalogue of current security measures and policies, including emergency planning, training, personnel access, and more.
Once completed, the tool produces the following two reports:
- A customized analysis of the existing relative risk posture, presented in a user-friendly report. This report will allow managers to make informed decisions when taking measures to improve security and preparedness and
- A benchmark report that compares the facility's protective posture to the programs in place at peer facilities.
Your Information Is Secure
The RSAT incorporates Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) protection into the self-assessment process. This ensures that information entered into RSAT will be protected from public disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act and similar state and local disclosure laws, as well as from use in civil litigation or as the basis for regulatory action.
