Recent events continue to demonstrate the need to create systems that are resilient to natural and manmade disruptions. This 2-day workshop on April 10 & 11, 2018 at the USACE in Vicksburg, MS is focused on the continued development of a resilience strategy within the National Security mission space.  This workshop will focus on the resilience of critical infrastructure and deployable systems needed by US forces and supporting agencies to meet operational requirements.  It will also examine external forces, such as environmental and political factors, that impact the critical system performance or are the drivers of these missions.

This workshop will:

•            Evaluate our ability to assess resilience to evolving natural or manmade disruptions,

•            Examine the range of capabilities, mitigations and responses that can be deployed to foster resilience

•            Establish a dialogue to develop an agenda for improving resilience as part of the National Security mission space.


This event will be limited to 90 participants. Please register as soon as possible to ensure your participation.
