Risk Management: Critical Infrastructure Preparedness and Resilience
Securing a network of critical infrastructure requires synergy across intelligence, protection, and resilience activities. Within the United States, a combination of man-made incidents and natural disasters has brought together disciplines in nontraditional partnerships to drive preparedness activities across the nation. This course will establish a framework for conducting threat, vulnerability, and consequence analysis, with an eye toward reducing the likelihood of infrastructure interruptions. It will explore the maturation of these activities resulting from terrorist incidents and natural disasters since September 11, 2001, and it will highlight the newly developed partnerships across government and private sector entities. Focus will be given to identifying lessons learned for applicability across the development and security professions.
