How it works

How the app works

How do I register?
  • Sign up as an consultant or a client, and follow the simple registration process, after which your account will be assessed and accepted based on the MiRisk Media vetting requirements.

Is MiRisk Media free?
  • Signing up as an expert or a client is free, but all experts are subject to vetting and ensuring they pass the required process. MiRisk Media takes a small fee 20% of each transaction, ensuring that the experts on out platform get paid fairly for the work they conduct.

How does MiRisk Media ensure the quality of its Consultants?
  • Prior to approval, risk-based due diligence is conducted on each expert, including assessing referrals and reputation; identity checks; confirmation of employment and professional histories; open source media, public records and internet searches; reference checks with former employers and/or current and former clients. Where possible and relevant, this also includes obtaining any legal, regulatory or disciplinary records. For experts operating in jurisdictions or professional service lines that carry a higher level of risk, we conduct additional due diligence before onboarding and risk-based monitoring of live projects on the platform. Members of the MiRisk Media team also conduct capability and integrity interviews, while experts expressly agree to the terms of our Code of Conduct and warranties regarding our strict legal terms.  All experts are subject to MiRisk Media's monitoring of performance in line with good industry practice.

Does MiRisk Media vet the Consultants?
  • Yes. The network is only accessible once experts have been verified by the team, and all experts are subject to risk-based due diligence and ongoing training and development to ensure quality standards and compliance with MiRisk Media Corporate Governance & Compliance Guidelines and Code of Conduct.

What types of consultants and companies are on the network?
  • MiRisk Media works with a wide range of high-quality independent consultants and boutique consultancies. They span the world in terms of coverage and operate in a variety of professional service lines. For example some are High Risk Advisors, country or Remote Area specialists, while others focus exclusively in areas such as health and safety. But what they share in common is their independence, professionalism, and commitment to providing high quality information and analysis in a timely, cost-effective, and legal and ethical manner.

What are the criteria for consultants getting on the network?
  • MiRisk Media carefully selects its experts according to a range of criteria. This includes the quality of their professional services; their expertise in certain jurisdictions, sectors or themes; and their adherence to MiRisk Media strict legal and ethical policies and guidelines.

    May I combine consultants for a complex requirement?
    • Yes. MiRisk Media platform enables you to engage as many consultants as are required to meet your project needs. You can either run each consultant as a separate project or MiRisk Media can engage a project manager to manage and oversee different streams on your behalf on those more complex requirements.

      Who are MiRisk Media's clients?
      • MiRisk's Media clients are clients from  TV and Film Production, Media, Journalists, and others within the industry who require expertise for remote, hostile or otherwise low infrastructure shoots and sites.

        Does MiRisk Media have particular geographic strengths?
        • No, MiRisk Media's aim is to develop a truly comprehensive global network. We have systematically identified and mapped out the highest quality professionals across all regions.

          How does MiRisk Media handle/what happens when there are time zone differences between the Client and the Consultant working on the project?
          • The internal messaging system within MiRisk Media's platform allows clients and experts the ability to communicate with one another, and with the MiRisk Media Team, 24/7 – irrespective of time zone differences. For projects where these time differences are irreconcilable we work collaboratively with the users to find a solution that works for all parties.

          What kind of experience do the MiRisk Media experts have?
          • While there is no one template for the experience required of a MiRisk Media expert, the majority have considerable experience in providing high quality deliverables in a professional setting. This might have been acquired in the context of investigative journalism, law enforcement, multinational institutions, or while working within other reputable media settings within the context of safety, security and medical.
