Nested dependencies and unconscious connectivity
Institute of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster
The modern world survives and thrives on complex interconnected systems which normally interface seamlessly and give efficiency and productivity. These systems are complex to develop and engineer but may be entirely un-noticed by the end user. This Hazards Forum event will consider the some of the implications of failure of these interconnected systems which give rise to effects well beyond a single component replacement or a localised outage. The presentations will consider the implications of deliberate exploitation of vulnerabilities, the complex threats posed by flooding a particularly hot topic given the UK Government’s recent Property Flood Resilience Code of Practice launch and climate change implications and how a complex multi-tiered organisation system in an airport can be improved.
This Hazards Forum event will bring together expert speakers from a variety of diverse sectors in security, natural hazards and aviation to discuss how these risks can be identified, characterised, modelled and mitigated.
Registration, tea and coffee is available from 17.30, and lectures will commence at 18.00. The event will conclude with a networking drinks reception.
