who is tisp
Who is TISP?
  • Established in 2001 by 11 professional and technical organizations and federal agencies.
  • Leads public and private sector collaboration that advances the practice and policies of infrastructure security and resiliency to sustain the nation’s resources.
  • Collectively, TISP represents nearly two million individuals with organizations that are involved in the planning, design, construction, and operation of infrastructure.
  • Primary objective is to create a collaborative and coordinated environment to enable a more secure and resilient infrastructure.
  • Our mission is to lead public and private sector collaboration that advances the practice and policy of infrastructure security and resiliency.

“Improving Resilience of the Nation’s Infrastructure”

2010 performance objectives
2010 Performance Objectives

Develop a Progression Plan Facilitating Resilience as a Function of the National Homeland Security Strategy, National Response Framework, and National Disaster Recovery Framework

Develop educational tools promoting resilience concepts

Develop new strategic partnerships - risk sciences, standards setting communities, and emergency management

2010 progression plan
2010 Progression Plan

Three Programs supporting the National Homeland Security Strategy and the National Frameworks:

Thought Leadership at the Intersection of Homeland Security, Emergency Management, and Risk Science.

Update the Regional Disaster Resilience Guide and develop a new Critical Infrastructure Resilience Guide.

Incorporate Resilience in the Whole Infrastructure/Build Criteria.

recommendations on infrastructure resilience management
Recommendations on Infrastructure Resilience Management

Common definition of “resilience.”

Education programs on resilience.

Common resilience management framework, applied consistently.

Unified national resilience goal.

Consistent methods for identifying core functions and interdependencies for risk and resilience management.

Consistent methods for prioritizing infrastructure investments.

Incentivize infrastructure owners and communities to pursue resilience policies and improvements.

Aging Infrastructure Impedes Resilience

Implementing a resilience strategy requires that the United States also address its aging infrastructure.

TISP offers a definition of resilience and a framework for prioritizing infrastructure resilience needs

Public and private stakeholders can more efficiently apply their resources.

definition of resilience
Definition of “Resilience”

Resilience is a capacity to absorb or mitigate the impact of hazard events while maintaining and restoring critical services.

optimizing resilience requires
Optimizing resilience requires

identifying and understanding critical operations and functions,

anticipating impacts of multi-hazard events,

preparing for and adapting to manage a crisis or disruption as it unfolds,

creating capacity to rapidly return to and/or reconstitute a more resilient “normal” operation,

tolerating loss of some capacity for the duration of the response effort to a disruption, and

partnering through communications, coordination and collaboration.

critical functions services
Critical Functions/Services

The first step to achieving resilience is to identify and agree on the functions that must continue after a hazard event.

Includes individual and community, private-sector and public-sector activities or operations in a facility, area, or region.

Continuity of critical operations defines the built environment and interdependencies that are vital.

impacts of hazard events
Impacts of hazard events

Analyze potential disruption to critical functions and interdependencies

Identify needed alterations to base and interdependent infrastructure to achieve resilience

Establish cost and schedule for each alteration

decision making
Decision making

Establish priorities for needed alterations

Determine available resources to address alterations

Identify alternative uses of limited resources

Select between alternatives and cost-effective use of limited resources based on impact, benefits, and acceptable risk
