Methodology for Assessing Regional Infrastructure Resilience

Lessons Learned from the Regional Resiliency Assessment Program
Revision Date

The Regional Resiliency Assessment Program, established in 2009, addresses regional critical infrastructure systems and their operations. In the past 10 years, the program adapted to a changing risk environment, advanced the nation’s preparedness for disasters, strengthened regional partnerships between government and the private sector, and developed a mature approach to addressing the unique challenges to resilience present at this scale of infrastructure operations.

CISA’s Methodology for Assessing Regional Resilience provides critical infrastructure security practitioners with a common framework and process for addressing complex infrastructure resilience issues. This proven approach is one that many partners can benefit from and can be tailored to their own needs. This assessment focuses on filling a knowledge gap by capturing practical knowledge gained from a decade of real-world experience conducting dozens of assessments.
