RiskWorld was launched by Tec-Com Inc. in 1995 as one of the first online risk publications. The staff that launched RiskWorld 20 years ago, with one exception, continues to develop the site today: Lorraine Abbott, founding editor, and Richard Abbott, Mary Bryant, and Katie Ingersoll. Former RiskWorld senior editor Amy Charlene Reed accepted a position in communications at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in November 2015.
