Crisis Situation Operational Investigation and Modelling in the Organizations of Critical Infrastructure

pdf PDF


Crisis situation operational investigation and modelling in the organizations of critical infrastructure is main theme of this paper. The cases of crisis situations have an origin in accidental, incidental, disruptive and emergency events operational occurrence in the organizations of critical infrastructure especially. Their crisis managements need operational coping of crisis situations according pre-prepared crisis scenarios. The forms, characteristics, behaviour and utilization of these crisis scenarios have various qualities, depending on real critical infrastructure organization. Paper?s first objective is to find and investigate the critical zones and functions in critical situations models of the DYVELOP method. They are able to identify problematic critical zones and functions, displaying critical interfaces among actors of crisis situations. Second objective proposes the discovering and modelling of the cycling cases and their phases, which the crisis management is obliged for successful coping of crisis situations. Several times cycling of these cases is necessary condition for the encompassment of the both the emergency event and the mitigation of organization?s damages. Uninterrupted and continuous cycling process brings crisis management fruitfulness and it is good indicator and controlling actor of organizational continuity and its sustainable development advanced possibilities in any crisis. The locations of critical interfaces are the flags of crisis situation in real organization of critical infrastructure. The research reliable rules and algorithmic procedures are derived for the detections of these interfaces.
