Infrastructure, VERGE

Scott Breor, deputy director at the Department of Homeland Security, on infrastructural resilience

Scott Breor works at the Department of Infrastructure Protection at the Department of Homeland Security. He works with officers from every state and territoy to make sure that both cyber and physical assets are resilient.

What does resilient mean? To Breor, "on the security side, we look at it as three variables: one, is the facility prepared? ... the second variable, is can the facility adapt and withstand whatever that event is? ... the third variable is recovery."

For citizens worried about resilience, Breor has tips: using the internet to find their hometown security advisors and working with them.
