CACH International to present a three-hour Threat, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessment workshop at 15th World Conference on Disaster ManagementÂ?

CACH International was selected from more than 280 applicants to present a workshop at the July 10 – 13, 2005 15th World Conference on Disaster Management™ in Toronto.

The Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness (CCEP) invited Charles S. Thomas, Managing Director of CACH International, to present the three-hour workshop “Developing a Comprehensive Risk Assessment.” One of only ten selected for this year’s conference, the workshop will discuss and evaluate methodologies for determining threats, vulnerabilities, and evaluating risks. Thomas will discuss the qualitative and quantitative aspects of a Comprehensive Risk Assessment and how it should evaluate threats, identify vulnerabilities, and prioritize mitigation measures.

"We are extremely honored to be invited to present this workshop.” said Thomas. “As one of only ten workshop presenters at this year’s Conference, CACH International is given an opportunity to share its extensive knowledge and ability in the risk assessment arena. We recognize that everything managers, responders and business leaders do in Emergency Management and Homeland Security is predicated on knowing the threats they face and their associated vulnerabilities. A comprehensive Risk Analysis is critical to mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery planning; this workshop will examine comprehensive risk assessment methodology in that light.”
