Thesis Series: Standardization of Cyber-Incident Response for Critical Infrastructure in Events


In this Master’s Thesis Series interview, Octavio Saenz speaks with Emily Jane McLoughlin (MA1801/1802), Emergency Preparedness Program Manager for the Department of Public Safety Communications and Emergency Management in Arlington, VA, about the research behind her thesis “Standardization of cyber-incident response for critical infrastructure in events with cascading impacts that endanger life safety.” McLoughlin’s thesis explores how the county could potentially leverage the private sector and other nontraditional stakeholders to work within the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) for a more effective response.
