IMA Webinar Broadcast: Talking about “Critical” in Critical Infrastructure with Tom Drucker

September 29, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Tom Drucker will discuss how criticality is perceived and addressed in Homeland Security and emergency management. The goal is to help participants understand and better communicate about Critical Infrastructure because understanding criticality can be defined as; determining what is of the greatest importance to the way things might happen. When discussing critical infrastructure, we are communicating what tangible things are most important to us as an organization or an individual. Organizations and reasonable minds can differ on how they define what is important and how to best communicate that importance. Tom will discuss how infrastructure is determined to be critical and highlight some examples of key differences in several processes used at the federal level and in California.

Upon completion of this webinar, the attendee/student will be able to understand: How to better communicate, and manage topics on “Critical Infrastructure” criticality, how it can be defined, and what tangible topics are most important or at threat.
