BlueDragon Use Cases
The emergency preparedness sector involves government emergency management agencies, humanitarian relief organizations, hospital systems, private corporations and local communities that collaborate to build societal resilience when facing disruptions from natural disasters, infrastructure failures, civil unrest, cyber attacks or disease outbreaks. With climate change intensifying storms, the risk of complex coordinated attacks growing, and communities recovering from recent crises, substantial vulnerabilities remain in readiness plans meant to stabilize regions during times of extreme duress.
Typical challenges faced include:
- Supply chain fractures stymying distribution of essential resources like food, water, medicine and power to impacted zones during initial days after hurricane strikes or cyber incidents.
- Budget overruns in IT upgrades delaying modernized crisis response communication platforms and analytical systems needed to efficiently coordinate relief efforts.
- Ransomware attacks shutting down hospital computer systems during infectious disease outbreaks limiting caregiver access to diagnostic results and treatment guidance.
- Community backlash and leadership turnover after chaotic emergency responses exacerbate suffering from preventable post-disaster miscues surrounding resource delivery confusion, evacuation traffic jams or poor shelter conditions.
- Safety incidents including injuries and fatalities stemming from inadequate protective equipment for first responders working extensive shifts clearing debris and stabilizing hazardous conditions in disaster aftermath.
- Inconsistent incident command rigor across agencies, regions and roles hampering unified response coordination when managing quickly evolving crises like civil disturbances or terror incidents.
- Inferior quality emergency supplies resulting in shortages of items like radios, blankets, generators or antibiotics during peak demand in early days after catastrophes.
- Damage and disruptions from simultaneous or repeating disasters diverting response capacity, further complicated by staffing and resource constraints.
- Loss of personnel with deep institutional experience in crisis leadership roles due to retirement and talent departures.
- Physical security weaknesses enabling theft of controlled pharmaceutical assets or allowing unauthorized access at medical shelters and other vital relief sites.
- Diminished oversight into fraud surrounding government recovery contracts awarded to vendors that fail to deliver services after receiving payments.
