Recent events have highlighted the importance of risk-based decision-making. Modern systems are becoming more complex; and the economic, safety, and other consequences of a system failure, more serious. Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) are challenging all organizations and all engineers. Ignoring risks, because they are improbable or not worth analysis, has proven to be highly risky in itself. Managing the risks of disruptive events is becoming a critical focus for business and society. For example, the need for security to mitigate electric reliability risks has been formalized as a regulatory requirement, by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) known as Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP).
This webinar series focuses on risk-based, problem-solving and decision-making, and the application of risk management standards and practices for public safety and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP).
