Network Adaptability to Combat Disaster Disruptions and Cascading Failures

Prof. Biswanath Mukherjee
University of California, Davis


To combat the rising risk of terrorist threats (e.g., Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) attacks) and natural disasters (e.g., hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, flooding, etc.) against our national/global interests and economic wellbeing - events which could lead to a domino effect of catastrophic failures of telecommunications, power, transportation, financial, and other critical infrastructures - novel methods are needed to provide protection in our information and communication networks. Topics such as the following will be discussed in this talk: normal preparedness, enhanced preparedness, degraded service under resource crunch, content connectivity (vs. network connectivity) due to the increasing deployment of cloud services, correlated cascading failures in interdependent networks, etc.
