Speakers include: Derek Porter, Group Head of Intelligence, Security and Crisis Management at BP International; Chris Smith, Global Head of Corporate Security at HSBC UK; and Richard Curran, Chief Security Officer at Intel Corporation.

A Review of National Resilience

Date: 25 July 2019

Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission, will give a lunchtime briefing to members on progress with the NIC's study on resilience and his views on the inter-relationship between the economy, the business community and the national infrastructure.

Read more

In October last year, The Chancellor wrote to the Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) requesting the NIC undertake a new study on the resilience of the UK’s economic infrastructure. The request highlighted the need to ensure our systems could cope with future shocks, threats, and challenges, especially those intensified by the increased interdependence of infrastructure systems. The remit was to research the evidence on the different approaches for improving the resilience of infrastructure systems and make recommendations to government on how best to assess resilience, how government should plan for unexpected shocks, and to review the costs and benefits of measures to improve resilience.

Resilience First is therefore delighted that Sir John Armitt, as Chair of the NIC, will give a private briefing to members on progress with the study and his views on the inter-relationship between the economy, the business community and the national infrastructure.

Kindly hosted by Atkins.
