THE FIFTH ANNUAL WORLD SUMMIT
ON INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY
The Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London, June 30-July 1, 2014
Resilience, Response, Collaboration
Assessing resilience for wide-area grid outages from E-threats and other hazards
EIS Summit Mission
Following EISS IV Washington D.C. in May, 2013 and the three previous summits, EISS has become the primary forum for international infrastructure security cooperation and coordination in addressing “Black Sky Day” hazards -- extraordinary and hazardous catastrophes utterly unlike the blue sky days during which utilities ideally operate. (For more information on EISS I through IV, click on the “archive” tab, to the right of this text on the home page).
EIS Summit V, London
The past year has seen a remarkable growth in interest in resilience investment and restoration planning to assure grid continuity for Black Sky Day hazards. EISS V will focus on resilience, response and collaboration. Summit sessions will examine severe hazards, consider policy implications, and review the status of the enhanced resilience and response planning now beginning to take place in both public and private sectors.
