Commsrisk Top Ten for October 2022

It seemed for a while that traffic to Commsrisk peaked during the height of the pandemic and might never climb so high again, but a steady return to growth has now been confirmed with October setting a new all-time record for the number of visitors during a calendar month. The previous record was smashed even though there was no particular day or country which stood out as generating an unusual volume of traffic. A thorough examination of the data instead indicates a continued broadening of the popularity of the website worldwide thanks to rising visitor numbers from many countries across every continent. This bodes well for Commsrisk’s mission to educate and inform risk professionals across the entire communications industry.
