Panel 2:
    Cyber Resilience During Super Storm Sandy and the Reliance on Physical Resilience

In order for firms to stay resilient, operations depend upon physical infrastructure. Physical infrastructure includes wiring, transportation, water, electricity and functioning facilities. Panelists in this session will talk about the need to restore physical infrastructure quickly in order to ensure cyber resilience based upon the lessons learned during Super Storm Sandy. Hear about the challenges faced and how the sectors worked together and with government to bring infrastructure up as rapidly as possible.
