Resilience First breakfast briefing: Early findings from EARTH EX 2019 – Working together to secure our world

5 December @ 8:00 am10:30 am

Earlier this year, the Resilience Shift joined the Electric Infrastructure Security Council to run EARTH EX the multi-player exercise, now in its third year, on resilience planning for a ‘Black Sky’-class complex catastrophe. It takes participants through a developing scenario where the power grid is knocked out completely for days or weeks. Whether organisations or individuals, they must consider together each evolution of the situation and their options, to then make choices on actions and next steps.

Resilience Shift has partnered with Resilience First to present the early findings from EARTH EX III//19, prior to the full report being published on the Resilience Shift website later this year.

For more on this work please see the ‘Electricity sector and interdependencies’ project page.

Speakers will review key lessons-learned from the exercise. How resilient is your organisation for a major power outage? How well prepared is our society? Are you and your family ready for the impact of a Black Sky event?

Speakers: 
Avi Schnurr, CEO and President of the EIS Council
Lord Toby Harris, UK representative of the EIS Council and Resilience First Board member
Xavier Aldea Borruel, Programme Manager, Resilience Shift
Dr Juliet Mian, Technical Director, Resilience Shift

Kindly hosted by FTI Consulting this event is for Resilience First members and invited guests.
