Update: RIGOR Workshop in Anchorage, AK


In May 2019, Converge Strategies and Idaho National Laboratory (INL) developed and executed an Air Force-sponsored workshop in Anchorage, AK for the Regional Identification of Gaps in Operational Resilience (RIGOR) program. At this workshop, critical infrastructure owners from across the Anchorage region came together to identify shared concerns and vulnerabilities and develop project concepts to strengthen their resilience posture. The workshop involved cross-sector infrastructure modeling using INL’s All Hazards Analysis tool and human centered design facilitation.

The Air Force Office of Energy Assurance sponsors RIGOR which brings together public and private stakeholders for common threat prioritization and joint assessment of vulnerabilities and mitigation of life line systems. The workshop was the first to be executed under RIGOR and the Air Force plans to replicate the process at other installations and regions in the future.
