Critical Infrastructure is defined by governments as: "systems, facilities, technologies and services essential to the well-being of nation."
Critical infrastructures face two categories of threats. Outside-the-system threats are posed by natural events, acts of terror and other types of predatory attacks. Inside-the-system threats are posed by occupational fraud, theft, corruption, workplace sabotage and, in the extreme, workplace violence.
They are not mutually exclusive. Negative inside-the-system environments: impact capacity to prevent and detect outside-the-system threats; induce internal unwanted behaviors, influence the choices employees make when tempted to do bad things; wear away resiliency and adaptability.
education and training
We view critical infrastructures as non-linear,
Thus, threats and security capacities and impacted by dependencies, competitions, human relationships and other types of interactions between the organization's internal parts, and environment.
We facilitate search conferencing for design of security future states that apply prevention science; and planning-in-action workshops to making new security discoveries, with more robust adaptability.
We combine cost-effective security e-learning education and awareness, with a "train your trainer" strategies for enhanced post online courses skills development.
Our terror and other crime threat risk assessments applies 2nd Generation Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.
Our "inside-the-system" threat risk adds an environmental assessment to conventional physical security threat assessment practice.
Our model partners with employees of critical infrastructure; and other stakeholders such as city managers, police leaders, property owners, facility managers and other security professionals to identify and develop to security threat solutions.
We are modest about our skills, identifying and partnering with allied subject matter experts in each of the many buckets through our systems thinking approach to security.
