9:00am-10:15am – Session 5a: Transport, Energy & Telecomms Infrastructure Security
Transport, power and telecommunications are the crucial economic lifeblood of any modern industrial economy. The fragility of Asia’s exposed transport network across a large region provides unique challenges, including freight and passenger travel through our ports, harbours and airports. Communications infrastructure becomes key during any threat scenario to which many fail when severely damaged, limiting coordinated efforts and potentially causing damage to the economy far in excess of any physical damage they may incur. The problem for the authorities, operators and agencies is to ensure the right balance of security, safety and resilience in facilities that are widely dispersed and subject to diverse ranges of threats.
