Public Security Technical Program 1 2009 CSS Summer Symposium PSTP08-120 Study: A scenario-based approach to protecting Telecommunications Critical Infrastructure (CI) in BC: Ensuring business continuity during a major HAZMAT event. Cindy Jeromin (IC) & Kelly Forbes (CAE PS)
2 Protecting Telecom CI in BC during a major Hazmat event Objective of the Study Western focused project to evaluate (a) response capability to pair technical telecom and trained HAZMAT expertise and (b) Bell and TELUS C2 capability to remotely manage a Hazmat incident during a major event in BC Expected results Reinforce the need to involve all levels of government, first responders, technical experts regional reps from CI owners in emergency planning for Hazmat events. Transition findings to operational communities. Carriers intent is to bring findings to CTEPA and potentially roll it out nationally. Deliverables Implementation Plan for enabling paired telecom – hazmat response capability IC BC Hazmat Incident Response Handbook to ensure business continuity Architecture framework to establish enduring relationships between critical emergency planning partners Study Management Lead Fed Dept: Industry Canada Western Region Partners: Bell TELUS BC Hazmat Management Ltd CAE Professional Services Canada
3 Leverage previous CI studies –CBRNE simulation in Montreal (2007) –Critical Infrastructure Protection - Telecommunications: Simulation Based Capability Assessment for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) Response –PSTP Telecom Scoping (2008) –Telecommunications Critical Infrastructure (CI): Feasibility of Establishing a Rapid, Telecom-Centric HAZMAT Response Capability within Canada »Architecture frameworks »Paired telecom-hazmat response capability option –US National Level Exercise (2008) –Observation of the Verizon MERIT SM response Background
4 Scenario driven –Hazmat incident at a carrier-owned central office –Demonstrate the application of Science & Technology to provide enhanced resilience to the CI sector Adhere to a Capability-based Planning approach –Scalable in size and scope across: CI sectors CBRNE-type attacks Canadian regions Exercise Design
