This holiday season, precautions must be taken to prevent a surge in case numbers this winter and protect individuals from the emerging variants. Dr. Rashid Chotani, IEM Health Chief Medical Director, shares how the holidays can safely be celebrated.
Geospatial information systems (GIS) are valuable tools to gain a greater understanding of where vulnerabilities exist and what actions to take to become more resilient. IEM uses innovative GIS technology to support our public health and pandemic response initiatives as well as to inform emergency managers of potential hazards and their consequences.
The protection of election infrastructure is essential to our country’s national security. Through concentrated efforts to maintain best practices for both the physical and cybersecurity of elections, CISA and election officials can help ensure that our elections remain safe, secure, and resilient.
Investment in our nation’s critical infrastructure is vital to build resilience and increase security against potential threats and disruptions. The historic infrastructure bill in conjunction with federal programs are key to enhancing infrastructure resiliency and furthering mitigation initiatives.
During this Infrastructure Security Month, take a moment for introspection and consider what practices you and your organization have in place to reduce the risk of security threats at a mass gathering event.
Not only will this bill provide needed resources and authority to help rebuild America’s roads, bridges and rail, and also improve access to clean water and high-speed internet and focus on resilience and climate adaptation in an equitable way.
Interconnected and Interdependent Critical Infrastructure: Shared risk means building in shared responsibility
In today’s globally interconnected world our critical infrastructure face an array of risks when it comes to cybersecurity. Creating a data breach response plan helps manage risk and decrease severity of breaches.
By educating America’s youth about disaster preparedness, we can empower them with knowledge and skills to lessen their anxieties pre-disaster and build their confidence in contributing to their family and community’s emergency preparedness.
If the foundation of preparedness is a planning or a plan, the centerpiece of preparedness is the disaster supply kit. A kit that includes basic essentials and is specifically catered to you and your family’s needs will significantly ease the burdens of an emergency and its aftermath.
