Great Lakes Hazards Coalition Fall Conference

Conference speakers will include:

Regional Director, Infrastructure Protection (Region V), U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Angela Pickett
Community Assistance and Technical Services Manager, U.S. DOT, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration
  • The Afternoon Session will be a workshop focused on assessing Regional Cyber Resilience. The 
ability of regional lifeline functions (water, power, transportation, healthcare, communications) and core economic engines (maritime) to deliver services is highly dependent on a complex mix of private and public Cyber/Information Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure.  Both natural hazards and human threats pose risk to this Cyber/ICT infrastructure. To launch a dialogue about ensuring the resilience of the Cyber/ICT infrastructure supporting critical regional functions, we will be conducting a facilitated session framed by the Regional Cyber Resilience Maturity Continuum. This new, simple framework has been developed by the MITRE Corporation's Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HSSEDI, a not-for-profit research and development corporation) for use by regions to establish shared understanding and priorities for ensuring the resilience of their most critical Cyber and ICT networks, systems, and data.  By the end of the day, we will have a view on where we are on Regional Cyber Resilience, and where we would like to go in the future. - MITRE Corporation
