BUILDING RESILIENCE AGAINST ANNIHILATION FROM WITHINSteve DeAngelis
, who is the CEO of EnterraSolutions
as well as a blogger
, took a large step toward building greater systemic resilience against the dangers of WMD that form the crux of the threats detailed in Charles Ikle's Annihilation From Within
and Oak Ridge National Laboratory
are forming a more closely connected network to become: "... a center of gravity for Enterprise Resilience Management and provide the venue for leading chemical, nuclear, biological and information technologists, political scientists and business people to join together to explore approaches to critical issues facing the world."
Steve has mapped out the functions of a SensorNet and ResilienceNet integration in a color graphic
that makes the intent of the integrated system clear to try and bring first warning about biological, nuclear, chemical and cyber threats as close as possible to real-time reaction and policy response. My thoughts:
*An effort that is critically important and long overdue, five years after 9/11.
*This mirrors the emerging trend in the larger intelligence and national security communities toward creating "fusion" centers but would broaden beyond collection and analysis to connecting all the different " players" and shape their response.
* I'm wondering if the proposed ResilienceNet would resemble an "all channel" network in its effect in dissemination of information or a modular structure.
Congratulations to Steve and Shane at IATGR for taking resilience to a new level !LINKS:Critt has more information at ConversationBase.
