The (Black Sky) Elephant in the Room: How do we talk? How will the key sectors communicate in a catastrophic subcontinental blackout?

The invisible communication catastrophe waiting for our first Black Sky scenario. 

Our societies today depend on tightly interdependent utilities, products and services. That means that, to recover from a catastrophic outage, all sectors and supply chain stakeholders will need to be interconnected with a Black Sky-capable emergency communication system.

Yet few organizations have called for deploying such a capability. What is the problem? Technology? Regulation? Priority? What can be done to kickstart this process in the US, the EU and partner nations?

Join us on April 28 to interact directly with emergency managers and communication experts from around the world, as they come together to consider this critical gap in societal resilience planning.
