Risk Assist for Property Owners
NIG Risk Assist offers an easy-to-use and comprehensive range of online tools to help manage and reduce risks in your business, 24/7.

Identify and understand postcode risk factors
Using postcode-specific risk factors and the business/organisation type operating there, the Business and Property Protection Portal provides resources and advice covering perils including fire, security and flood. This information library is based on risk control data and statistics collated by RISCAuthority (Risk Insight, Strategy and Control Authority) and the Fire Protection Association (FPA).
