Title: Protection of Critical Environmental Infrastructure A Report on a Series of Infrastructure Security Summits


1
Protection of Critical Environmental
InfrastructureA Report on a Series of
Infrastructure Security Summits
  • Will Kirksey, P.E.
  • RASco, Inc.
  • Wkirksey2001_at_yahoo.com

2
Overview
  • Background
  • Overall findings and driving forces
  • Guidelines for Action
  • Technology characteristics

3
Background
  • The infrastructure security summits
  • Conducted by The Infrastructure Security
    Partnership, and through CERFs Executive
    Program Series
  • Brought together senior level government and
    private sector executives
  • Addressed policy, technology, and contingency
    planning issues
  • Covered cross-cutting issues and specific sectors

The Civil Engineering Research
Foundation, ASCEs research arm www.cerf.org

The Infrastructure Security Partnership
  • An association of associations and agencies
  • Founding members ACEC, AIA, ASCE, AGC, CII,
    FEMA, FFC, NIST, NAVFAC, SAME, USACE
  • Purpose
  • Facilitate broad dialogue and collaboration
  • Offer sources of technical support and comment
  • www.tisp.org

5
Workshop Topics
  • Protecting Infrastructure the first post 9/11
    summit of construction industry and government
    executives
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection Priorities
    The Built Environment -- commissioned by the
    Executive Office of the President
  • Building System Security Summit
  • Critical Water Infrastructure Dialogue
  • Securing the Nations Surface Transportation
    Systems

6
Critical Environmental Infrastructure
  • Definition
  • Physical facilities providing essential
    environmental protection, control, and health and
    safety
  • Facilities that could compromise environmental
    protection, control, and health and safety if
    attacked
  • Examples
  • Water and wastewater systems
  • Energy systems
  • Chemical production and storage

7
Overall Findings
  • Build broader Collaboration
  • Define a Risk-based response
  • Adopt Performance-based technology
  • Strategies should include
  • Immediate action
  • Tactics evolving over time
  • Identify measures to meet Multiple Challenges

8
  • We havent the money,
  • So well have to think.
  • - Lord Rutherford

9
Driving Forces
  • Mission Diversity
  • Decentralization of infrastructure
  • Tight finance and force delivery ratios
  • Increasing time, cost, and risk of long supply
    lines
  • Increased focus on security and force protection
  • New codes, standards, and regulations
  • Paradigm shifting technology innovation

10
  • Today, if you are not confused,
  • You are just not thinking clearly
  • - L. Peter

11
Guidelines Assess and Measure
  • Conduct a threat and risk assessment
  • Apply consistent standards and metrics
  • Look at the whole system
  • For more info

12
GuidelinesPlan and Train
  • Develop system and local facility contingency
    plans
  • Include strategic, tactical, and operational
    issues
  • Obtain cross-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder
    involvement

13
  • Plans are worthless,
  • Planning is priceless.
  • - Winston Churchill

14
Guidelines Build Alliances
  • Improve intra- and inter-organization/agency
    coordination
  • Copy, borrow, leverage tools and methods
  • Capture lessons learned overseas

15
  • If everyone is thinking alike,
  • Then someone isnt thinking
  • - Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.

16
Guidelines Change the Facility
  • Multi-function innovation -- improve productivity
    while enhancing security
  • Increase design and ops redundancy
  • Focus on how to manage consequences

17
GuidelinesAccelerate the adoption of RD
  • Collaborate in technology evaluation and
    demonstration
  • Generate credible performance data
  • Develop links with existing evaluation programs
    (e.g., the Combating Terrorism Technical Support
    Working Group, www.tswg.org )
  • Remove barriers to innovation

18
  • Learning is not compulsory
  • Neither is survival.
  • - W. Edwards Deming

19
Key Technologies
  • Materials
  • Modular construction techniques
  • Small-scale, decentralized infrastructure
  • Surveillance and monitoring
  • Access control
  • In-service maintenance and repair
  • Automated controls

20
Information Technology
  • Facility Information Systems
  • OM
  • First responders
  • Diagnosis and forensics
  • Robots and automation
  • Integrated data and communications systems
  • Analytical and sensing technologies (real time)

21
  • Its better to know some of the questions
  • Than all of the answers.
  • - James Thurber

22
New Construction Approaches
  • Mass produced modular systems
  • Advanced project delivery technology
  • Innovative service restoration technology
  • Asset hardening technology
  • More cost effective drilling and excavation
  • New integrated barrier design


23
SUMMARY
  • Collaboration
  • Risk-based response
  • Performance-based technology
  • Multiple timeframes
  • Multi-function technology


24
  • Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents,
  • Which in prosperous circumstances would
  • Have lain dormant
  • - Horace
