Collaborating on Operational Threats in Asia: Supply Chain, Cyber, Natural Hazards, Contagion

Singapore, March 27-29, 2012

Members of the Asian Crisis and Security Group (ACSG) presented best practices from their experience with the triple crisis of the Japanese earthquake/tsunami/nuclear accident of March 2011. 

Political Instability: The Arab Spring and the draw-down of U.S. presence in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to be sources of risk, as stressed by GRN participants. In addition to security risks, participants said the reliability of local governments is a serious source of uncertainty for routine and crisis management planning.

Technological Resources: Participants noted that a range of new technologies are becoming available to assist with situational awareness, from social media to satellite imaging. Surveillance tools once available only to governments are now becoming available to the private sector.

Public Heath: The risk of public health emergencies was discussed along three lines: natural hazards, technological hazards, and emerging and re-emerging infectious disease. 

Cyber Security: Participants asserted that cyber risk may soon outstrip the risk of traditional terrorism. In the words of one participant, today, a compromised server can betray as much information in five seconds as a compromised person could give up in years. Two key areas were identified in addressing cyber risk: personnel and infrastructure.
