The increased complexity and interconnectedness of these essential services means that disruption or lack of availability can have a significant impact on security, economic well-being and the social welfare of a country. Threats to Critical Infrastructure can originate from natural hazards, malicious intent or accidents such as floods, terrorist attacks and chemical spills.
At 4C Strategies, we work with Critical Infrastructure providers to identify and assess the risks and vulnerabilities associated with critical points of failure or stemming from interdependencies across the supply chain. We help clients to develop and implement solutions to mitigate these risks.
Examples of our work in this area include:
Government: We have supported local and national government agencies in the analysis, and on-going tracking of disruptive events which impact upon the provision of critical public services. Our solutions have helped these agencies to map critical infrastructure, gather vital situational intelligence and share a common view of impact and risk which supports real time decision-making and resource allocation. The result is a more coherent and efficient incident management effort.
Energy: We have worked with a range of energy producers and suppliers as well as national energy regulators to identify their critical dependencies and weaknesses in order to develop and implement pragmatic solutions to mitigate risk. We have also coordinated a number of market-wide exercises to test the energy sector’s ability to deliver a cohesive and effective response to a major disruption.
All of these areas are supported by the Exonaut™ Suite of tools.
