Resiliency in focus at Secured Cities conference

Experts discuss how organizations should prepare, respond to risks


To do this, Flynn said that organizations need to:

1). Identify the critical functions
2). Map or model components and operations, evaluate the boundaries (governmental jurisdictions) and governance of the infrastructure, system or network that provides critical functions
3). Evaluate vulnerability to the risk of disruption
4). Consider the worst-case scenario/test to failure so as to fully understand the consequences
5). Based on these steps, identify and adapt resilience design, features, processes and protocols that mitigate the risk of disruption and speed recovery

“This country has no method by which we go and learn after these events,” Flynn said. “We do a lot to invest and protect, but have no plan when it fails.”
