The Critical Infrastructure Learning Series provides one-hour web-based seminars conducted by senior critical infrastructure experts on the tools, trends, issues, and best practices for infrastructure security and resilience.
Series offerings are available at no-cost and are highly recommended for the Department of Homeland Security's private sector and government partners, to include critical infrastructure owners and operators and officials with responsibility for risk, security, and emergency management functions.
Changing Precipitation, Drought, and the Impacts to Infrastructure
Date: Friday, April 10, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. EDT
As part of the Extreme Weather and Critical Infrastructure Webinar Series, the Office of Infrastructure Protection will host a Webinar, "Changing Precipitation, Drought, and the Impacts to Critical Infrastructure," on Friday, April 10, 2015, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. EDT. This joint partnership Webinar will feature speakers from across the interagency discussing the changing precipitation patterns around the United States, how they create drought conditions, and, in turn, their impact on critical infrastructure.
Topics will include:
- National changes in patterns of precipitation - causes, how much, when, where, and how they contribute to drought conditions.
- The cascading impacts of drought on critical infrastructure sectors.
The Extreme Weather and Critical Infrastructure Webinar Series provides participants with a series of interactive presentations that connect key infrastructure stakeholders from throughout the public and private sector with subject matter experts and innovators. The Webinars share tools, trends, issues, lessons learned, and best practices that support improved security and resilience of infrastructure in the face of increasingly frequent and diverse weather threats.
Read-ahead materials will be sent to registrants in a subsequent notification closer to the date.
