Sharing his views on the protection of critical infrastructure in urban environments.
“Critical Infrastructure Protection in urban areas needs a close and strong co-operation between all relevant stakeholders. Key factors of this co-operation are common terms, common language, needs-oriented prevention measures, concerted command & control structures, standard operation procedures and – in particular - professional information management.”

Presenting the GENETICS-framework for better comprehension of the urban environment.
"As the world continues to urbanize, unique stressors will challenge a city’s ability to cope, leading to destabilization and, potentially, conflict. In his recent address to the May 2022 graduates of the United States Military Academy, Army General Mark Milley, chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, noted that they would need to “optimize…for urban combat.” The current tools to understand urban environments, and their potential to shift from stable to unstable, are limited. The GENETICS Framework closes this gap and provides a more comprehensive understanding of a city’s resilience as a system-of-systems."
