Communications Best Practices When Identifying Critical Infrastructures
Public service agencies communication airwaves have inherent device connectivity challenges that must be overcome by an installation of a communication system that is capable of averting the challenges. The best connectivity infrastructure must be flanked by the general outline of the systems used in a region. Interference of communication lines by the relevant public safety agencies must be reduced to negligible levels, to facilitate an around the clock service delivery and at an emergency handling capacity. Wireless communication spectrum in use by the communication system in lace must demonstrate a capacity to handle the various safety surveillance systems without running out of reach. Wireless bands in use by various public safety services officials must create an internetworking capacity that is handled by the principle of interoperability discussed below. Using the CARVER matrix in the infrastructure level of safety assurance, it is possible for emergency handling systems to avert various deficiencies. The acronym represents six vital features that must be in place to contain disaster risks. Criticality, Accessibility, Recuperability, Vulnerability, Effect and Recognizability are used in various applications for systems analysis for the relevant application in question. In public security service agencies, the matrix is used to calculate the level of risk exposure to various dangers that face the system such as public buildings and other infrastructure. Corresponding application of the matrix values allows the assessment to formulate response options using the infrastructure’s capacity to handle the identified risks. Using the values, the infrastructure in question can be evaluated and weaknesses obtained thereon used to design and implement the appropriate response capacity that is missing. Interoperability in safety communication systems is a conglomeration of the best disaster response program, by facilitation of the appropriate connectivity to allow efficiency in managing disasters.
