Allan McDougall – BA, BMASc, PCIP, CMAS, CISSP
President and Co-Founder of Evolutionary Security Management
Critical Infrastructure Protection and System Level Security requires a balanced approach that takes into account the need to protect infrastructure while also maintaining the capacity within the organization. Failing to achieve this balance, in favour of either aspect, could leave the organization open to a number of kinds of risk (Security, Financial, etc). At Evolutionary Security Management, Inc., our goal is to work with you as you try to achieve this balance.
Allan’s team, consisting of a core group involved in working on the leading edge of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) and Security Management, takes a great deal of pride in building systems that help you identify and maintain this balance. This team is relatively flexible, based upon your needs, and competitively priced depending upon the level of services that we are asked to provide.
Some of the key experience held by team members includes:
- Security Program Management in the Private and Public Sectors;
- Training and Awareness program development and delivery;
- Investigations within Public and Private Sectors;
- Information Security at both the Program and Operational Levels; and,
- Review, Inspection, and Guidance within the Security and Critical Infrastructure Protection domains.
Allan and Bob have worked together to form a coalition to support (essentially) all of North America (Canada, United States and eventually, Mexico) through their ‘CIP’ efforts and research.
Allan co-authored his first book with Bob Radvanovsky entitled, “Transportation Systems Security” (also published by Taylor & Francis Publishing, released in June 2008) provides text presenting strategic, practical, and operational applications for physical, procedural, and psychological safeguards needed to keep all modes of transportation up and running. Topics include systems layout, core performance issues, and risk assessment, predicting internal and external loss, exercises and training. Bob Radvanovsky is the co-founder of Infracritical in the United States.
Allan’s second book, “Critical Infrastructure: Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness – Second Edition” (published by Taylor & Francis Publishing, released in December 2009) takes Bob’s first book as a base and begins to migrate from protecting assets to assuring operational services. Working with Bob Radvanovsky from his first book, both authors felt that references should be “frozen in time”, and have been preserved with an online web site. This book is used at several educational institutions throughout United States and Canada as an authoritative source about “critical infrastructure”.
