The history of Risk.net

Risk.net was launched in 2001 – a landmark event as it meant Risk magazine’s content was available online for the first time.

In subsequent years the website grew significantly as this shift from print to digital continued apace. Other magazines from the Risk.net family hosted their content on the site, and were followed by the highly technical Risk Journals.

As the site improved, so too did the experience for our users. Previously they’d have to sign up to multiple magazine subscriptions in order to access the breadth of information they receive today. And they now access articles as soon as they break, instead of waiting for a magazine to land on their desks.

Below is a full timeline of Risk.net’s history.
