Because the world is changing faster than we imagined it would.
Resilience is “the ability of assets, networks and systems to anticipate, absorb, adapt to and/or rapidly recover from a disruptive event or shock.” Climate change, technological change, political upheaval and malicious acts are disrupting economies and societies with unforeseen magnitude and frequency. Experience shows that high impact disruptive events are inevitable. Experience also shows that communities and organizations do not have enough resources to protect everything from all possible disruptions. So, we must adapt. We must become more resilient.
Building resilience is about understanding what could happen, what the consequences might be, designing resilient critical infrastructure systems that react quickly to a shock, and minimizing the impact to allow for a quick recovery.
Modern societies are enormously complex networks of highly concentrated, interconnected systems. The consequences of a shock to one part of the system are felt throughout the network. Often those consequences are amplified as the impact is propagated from one system to another. RiskLogik maps the connections between critical infrastructure systems and models the impact of an incident and the cascade of consequences to all the systems in the network. The aim is to create a resilient network that protects more than infrastructure. It protects the vital, non-negotiable operationing capacity supported by that infrastructure.
Why resilience? Because the status quo isn’t working.
