The introduction of ‘Risk on Risk Analusis’ was a direct result of failing to understand the lowest common denominator taking effect. When civil unrest occurred and basic living requirements declined, those people left lacking physically took what they could to use as a means of trade and barter. In this instance, groups between 2-3 people, risked their own safety by throwing ‘grappling’ hooks and rope over heavy duty power lines, connected to a four wheel-drive and simply dragged the cable to the ground where it was recovered for the copper content.
Global dynamics change on an ever-increasing basis. Risk analysis produced to manage risk must, therefore, be considered a living analysis and should not be left unattended in a rapidly changing world. Thus, ensuring the integrity of the data, control measures and ultimate preparedness for a time of crisis.
At a time when government agencies are producing robust action plans for the protection of critical infrasructure and delivery of essential services, new regulations, reporting tools and acknowledged the necessity for including climate change and environmental factors in the risk analysis – what more could be done to reduce the potential effect of ‘Risk on Risk Analysis’?
ISSS Chairman, Philip Wayer, concludes; “Based on the significant platforms that have been initiated, paving the way for 2014 to 2020 the key variables in RSA activities would be the physical analysis, method of implementation in each municipality. Dependent on size and funding, municipalities may either outsource to the private sector or perform an RSA themselves utilizing internal resource”. Wayer believes that the areas of innovation and inter-connect present the most significant challenge for the continuity of delivery of essential services and protection of critical infrastructure. “This challenge can be effectively and efficiently met through a post-RSA verification process, ensuring the integrity of the RSA and crisis preparedness planning and the engagement of private – public sector co-operation. The risk management process is a ‘living process’. It should be supported with structured regular reviews, workshops and seminars creating a harmonized and syncronized private-public sector partnership delivering robust, innovative and resilient planning”.
