CIRI research highlighted at Smart Cities Caucus for Hurricane Resilience

CIRI's Gabe Weaver demoed his port security tool at the DHS Science and Technology Directorate Smart Cities Caucus: Building Community Resilience During Hurricane Season last week on Capitol Hill. The tool allows port operators to model cargo flows through a shipping port, then use the model to introduce a wide range of cyber and/or physical disruptions that could interfere with port activity, and to assess the impact of the disruption in terms of flows and economic losses. The caucus aimed to highlight how new technology can support hurricane resilience and save lives.
