Pt 2: Vulnerability of Critical Infrastructure - Do We Need to Re-evaluate?Seven years after 9/11, our nation has a long way to go to secure adequately the bulk of our critical infrastructure against the likes of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Transportation systems (including air, rail and shipping), along with chemical facilities, food and water supplies, communication systems, financial institutions, government complexes are at risk. Experts in the field will discuss what has been done to protect these facilities and what models can be implemented to secure private and public facilities in a systematic way. * MODERATOR: Eric Kutner, Principal, Emergency Response Design Group * Richard Canas, Director of New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness * John Paczkowski, Director, Emergency Management and Security, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; Naval Postgraduate School Distinguished Fellow at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security * Benjamin A.
