Beyond the Storms: Strengthening Homeland Security and Disaster Management to Achieve Resilience

Event: DRI 2014

Author: Dan Egli

Since 9/11, hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, and the Boston Marathon attacks there has been a wave of workshops to collect the lessons learned in preparedness and crisis response. The talk has focused on the role of public-private-academic partnerships as well as critical infrastructure protection. What are the major findings from these events and how do we, as a nation, move "beyond the storms" of reacting to disruptive events, cataloging more lessons, and submitting FEMA grant requests to operationalize critical infrastructure resilience? Attend this session to find out. Egli authored the book, Beyond the Storms (published in November 2013) to prepare a new generation of leaders to help bridge the gaps between public and private sectors and shift the focus of local and regional leaders to long term risk mitigation and a response posture that supports smart resilience.
