Title: Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention


1
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • Report Back
  • Mike Cox EPA
  • Robin Gardner BC, Canada
  • Dan Phalen - EPA

2
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • Purpose of Track 1
  • Develop an understanding of vulnerability
    assessments for water supplies
  • Describe available tools for conducting
    vulnerability assessments
  • Provide examples of how tools are used
  • Identify data gaps and needs

3
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • General Observations
  • Mission Provide safe, reliable water supply and
    wastewater collection and treatment
  • VAs should be viewed in larger context Security
    of service, not just from terrorism
  • Work that goes into VA process is most important
    and should be iterative and linked to other
    threat assessments

4
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • General Observations
  • Integrated threat management (not just response
    but prevention, mitigation, and preparedness)
  • Benefits of consulting w/ law enforcement
  • Sensitivities around plans, sharing information
  • What will EPA do with VAS?

5
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • Federal Coordination
  • Central repository for grants (how to get and
    administer)
  • Improve process for stuff
  • Secrecy classification
  • Security of information
  • Information sharing within and outside government
  • Develop standard security clearance system for
    people

6
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • EPA Actions
  • Develop spreadsheet on comparison of tools and
    resources
  • Information sharing/secrecy
  • Guidance on detection and response to specific
    CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and
    nuclear) agents, incidents, and clean up for
    health professionals and facility operators

7
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • EPA Actions
  • Risk communication Cultivating understanding of
    risk and development of pre-scripted materials
  • Guidance on more complete ER Plans to encompass
    prevention, mitigation, preparedness,
    consequence management, and long-term recovery
  • Expand RAM-W to include cost/benefit analysis and
    other threat types similar to VSAT

8
Vulnerability Assessment and Incident Prevention
  • EPA Actions
  • Change of focus to continuity of operations not
    just response
  • Guidance on best practices for reducing
    vulnerabilities based on size and capability
  • Determine vulnerability of web-based SCADA
    systems, maintenance management systems, and GIS
