      Operating Web-Map Applications in Cyber Disrupted Environments

      This seminar demonstrates best-practices for running locally-hosted or offline map-services in cyber disrupted environments. Maps are critical for data interpretation and command & control, used by industries from emergency-response, telecommunications, to logistics. Many systems have become reliant on webbased services. However, disasters, & conflict pose a threat to infrastructure and the viability of these services. We’ve observed a shift back towards on-premise map services and demonstrate how to effectively

      From Weather-Forecasting To Data-Driven Impact-Forecasting.

      Understanding the impact of extreme weather events on the built environment''s operations and design life is crucial. To achieve this, data on both extreme weather events and their impacts are vital. By integrating this risk model with short-, medium-, and long-range weather forecasts, we can develop predictive impact forecasts. These forecasts are instrumental in creating adaptable risk management strategies across various time frames.

      Bringing order out of chaos: An overview of fire and water damage restoration techniques

      Time is of the essence when it comes to disaster recovery. If disasters may range from small emergencies to natural calamities, each type of event requires a very different scale and type of immediate response and the first 24-48 hours are critical in determining whether a business or a house can fully recover. The seminar offers an overview of fire and water damage restoration techniques through several case studies.

      Security of Power Supply with On-site Renewable Energy Generation

      Presenting on the risk to the centralized power grid and power supply due to natural and other disasters. Dependence on the grid for core power supply creates vulnerabilities in both the security and cost of supply. Examples of this is the 2018 Camp Fire in California and the energy crisis as a result of the Ukrainian conflict. On site high density generation is key to mitigating this risk.
