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)


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

Study Management

Lead Fed Dept:Industry Canada Western Region

Partners:

Bell

TELUS

BC Hazmat Management Ltd

CAE Professional Services Canada

  • 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


Background

  • 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 MERITSM response


  • Exercise Design

    • 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
