University of Toronto, Centre for Resilience of Critical Infrastructure
The Centre for Resilience of Critical Infrastructure was tasked to conduct a comparison of a full protection assessment and a full resilience assessment of the same operation, the St. George campus of the University of Toronto, in order to determine the investment tradeoffs between protection and resilience. Using these two studies the general parameters of operations relevant to achieving a balance of protection and resilience are extracted and formulated into a framework methodology. This report, constituting the detailing of this novel methodology is the final stage of the study.
The study was conducted by The Centre for Resilience of Critical Infrastructure in collaboration with Campus Community Police. The study area comprised of 110 buildings of the St. George campus, excluding federated colleges. The effort was conducted over the course of Fall 2013 through Spring 2014 and included background research, protection and resilience surveys of the buildings and operation, and the full assessments and analysis. The study phases are summarized in the folowing table Balancing Protection and Resilience – Final.
