Critical Infrastructure: Vulnerability and Consequence Analysis
Comprehensive risk reduction for critical infrastructure requires an understanding of asset protection and resilience enhancement methodologies. These activities are vital components of sound preparedness and business continuity planning across all levels of government and industry. This course will establish a foundation for engaging in risk management by focusing on vulnerability and consequence analysis. Students will develop an understanding of infrastructure restoration prioritization, dependency mapping, and infrastructure preparedness activities in support of resilience. They will be introduced to physical security assessments for infrastructure and enhance their understanding of available cybersecurity resources. Students also will acquire the skills necessary to develop resilience and security enhancement options, and they will discuss techniques to brief those results to industry leaders and emergency managers.
