Critical infrastructure security deals with assets that are regarded as critical to the functioning of society and require enhanced levels of protection.
Such assets include aviation and maritime facilities, oil, gas and electricity supply services, water treatment plants, military bases, and other sensitive sites such as prisons, research facilities and government institutions.
Disruption to the operations of these sites/services can have serious consequences for domestic security, economic activity, governance and public health, safety and confidence.
Ensuring the security and resilience of critical national assets and operations is naturally a matter of priority for governments and private operators around Australia and the world.
With a long-standing background in risk-based planning for critical infrastructure security (CI) design and implementation, Agilient continues to assist in maximising the community ability to prevent and withstand the impacts of terrorism and other major threats.
We deliver security consulting services that assist in the design of world-class infrastructure and in doing so provide a considerable contribution to Australia’s CI resilience.
Agilient offers the extensive expertise of our professional consultants in the design of risk-based security and resilience solutions for our partners in the CI domain.
We have an impressive pedigree in related initiatives and through current or past affiliations our consultants have been responsible for those sample CI related projects linked to the right of this page.
