Before, Political Risk information was gathered by human analysts

Cytora was founded on the belief that data used to evaluate Political Risk was poor, out of date and low resolution - leading to gaps in knowledge and costly failures.

Using our unique event extraction technology, we collect vast amounts of reliable and real time event data - across all major political risk types - enabling you to make informed decisions about the risks you face.

We provide a single platform for you to view political risk information relevant to your operations.
