Resilience Solutions

Applying Our Research

At the Global Resilience Institute (GRI), we focus on applied research that helps companies and communities to become more resilient so that they can thrive in the face of inevitable shocks and disruptions. GRI supports resilience-building efforts with these unique capabilities:


Integrated Resilience Action Planning

GRI applies its Resilience Enhancement System – a practical evidence-based methodology and process – to work closely with investors, developers, companies, and communities to increase their resilience by analyzing strengths and areas of potential fragility, and recommending actionable resilience practices that improve economic competitiveness and strengthen social capital.

Building Cyber Resilience

While developing the concept of Cyber Resilience, GRI is working to design a separate resilient network for critical infrastructure operations to guard the power grid from electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) threats, as well as establish a backup network for incident response planning, and develop a Major Cyber Incident Review Board modeled on the National Transportation Safety Board.

Critical Infrastructure Resilience

By conducting research and hosting major workshops that bring together infrastructure owners and operators, emergency managers, and major industry representatives, GRI has deep expertise in the intermodal transportation and logistics systems that positions it to identify risks and to evaluate security and resilience solutions that can be practically adopted by port operators, carriers, and logistic providers.
