    Is Emergency Management A Profession or a Job

    Is Emergency Management A Profession or a Job

    Whether or not emergency management is considered a profession has been discussed and debated for several years. There are all sorts of implications including recognition as professionals, education versus training, classroom instruction versus on-the-job experience, and respect for the work emergency managers do both when responding to a disaster and when doing other things to preserve life, property, and the environment. In addition to performing the duties of an emergency manager, there are political and policy-making issues requiring the emergency manager’s attention. Dr. Carol Cwiak, Associate Professor of Emergency Management at North Dakota State University has been leading the transformation of emergency management from a job to a profession. Dr. Cwiak has lectured around the world on the importance of the code of ethics and core competencies for emergency management.

    Cyber Attacks Not a Matter If, Just a Matter of When

    Cyberattacks are an ever-growing threat to critical infrastructures such as power, gas, water stations, and transportation control systems. Cybersecurity breaches can potentially have devastating physical and economic effects.

    Failing to plan for cyber threats as part of emergency management procedures is detrimental to national security and has become the focus of emergency management over the last 15 years.

    Prachee Kale, Founding Executive Fellow At CyberTheory Institute, co-founded Think.Design.Cyber to pioneer critical systems and design thinking in the cybersecurity discipline. Prachee is also the co-author of the award-winning research article “Cybersecurity: The End Game” published in Taylor and Francis’s EDPACs Journal.

    Why Public Private Partnerships Are Critical

    Why Public Private Partnerships Are Critical

    Public-Private Partnerships is an agreement between a public agency and a private sector entity. Through this agreement, the skills and assets of each sector are shared in delivering a service or facility for the use of the general public. As governments seek to upgrade infrastructure and address the challenges of climate change, among other objectives, the need for private-sector involvement has grown. When considering pricing risk in a comprehensive and transparent way, governments can tap into the true expertise of private players. Brian Barnier, Head of Decision Science and Analytics is focused on growing companies, investments, and countries, bringing practical insight to investors, boards, and management to help them bridge from strategy to execution. He accelerates improvement in business results through a "risk lens" that incorporates both growth and turnaround lessons learned across industries, professional disciplines, and countries.
