IEM’s mission is to build a
safe, secure, and resilient world
WE PRODUCE RESULTS THAT MATTER.
RESULTS THAT SAVE LIVES.
IEM accomplishes this mission by working closely with government agencies and private sector organizations around the world to improve disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation and strengthen homeland security and defense, public health, cybersecurity, and critical infrastructure. We create science-based tools, technology and strategies that help our customers achieve measurable results—saving lives, reducing costs, increasing efficiencies, and facilitating evidence-based decision making.
The largest woman-owned business of its kind, IEM was founded by current President and CEO, Madhu Beriwal, in February 1985, and was one of the first companies in the world to focus exclusively on emergency management. Ms. Beriwal recognized a distinct need to integrate science and objectivity into decisions about public protection, moving preparedness from a subjective foundation to one based on quantitative data. That vision from over 35 years ago built the company that today is helping government agencies and the private sector save lives. Since inception, IEM has expanded beyond disaster preparedness, response, mitigation, and recovery to offer a range of services and solutions that also strengthen homeland security and defense, public health, cybersecurity, and critical infrastructure.
