Representatives gather for All Sectors Resilience Forum

30 June 2023

Industry and government representatives across Victoria’s critical infrastructure sector recently came together to network, share ideas and discuss common challenges at the All Sectors Resilience Network Forum.

Hosted by Emergency Management Victoria, the forum is held annually for critical infrastructure stakeholders. The theme of this year’s forum was Not if, but when: Critical Infrastructure Resilience in a dynamic and evolving threat environment.

The key topics for this year’s forum were space weather and cyber security, with presentations from the Bureau of Meteorology, Flybuys and Fire Rescue Victoria. The program also included presentations from Foodbank Victoria and Engineers Australia on the development of security and resilience standards.

Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp provided the forum’s opening address, discussing the importance of working together to build resilience to key emergency risks.

‘Our arrangements provide a strong foundation for genuine collaboration between industry and government, which has been particularly important in recent years,’ he said.

Critical infrastructure supports our most basic needs, including safe drinking water, food, energy, reliable transport and access to health, communications, banking and government services. Building the resilience of critical infrastructure is essential to reduce disruption of services to the community during emergencies.
