Recovery & Resilience:

Preparing for the Worst?

Recovery & Resilience: Preparing for the Worst?

One of the primary goals of terrorists around the world is to create a culture of fear that stems from the continuous threat of attack. In order to best cope with the threat of terrorists, countries must ensure that their population is resilient enough to cope with the threat of terrorism. In addition, countries must ensure that they have proper recovery methods in place in case a terrorist attack does indeed occur.

This workshop will discuss the importance of a resilient society, and will recommend concrete methods for coping with the threat of terrorism. Experts will also address proper recovery techniques from around the world, providing the audience with tangible take-away messages. In addition, the ICT, in cooperation with Israel's Local Authorities Federation, will unveil their joint project assessing methods of preparedness of the home front in case of mass-emergency. The project focuses on policies of civilian preparedness, to achieve bottom-up readiness in the case of a mass-emergency.
