Fukushima

On 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude tremor hit 400km north-east of Tokyo, causing a tsunami along the north-eastern coast of Japan and resulting in a massive loss of lives and infrastructure damage - including damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The consequent release of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has created numerous risks for the Japanese population including food and beverage irradiation concerns, home and workplace energy supply issues, contaminated debris disposal and the continuing risk of hydrogen explosions from the site.

Newrisk Limited's principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, has professional experience and is able to advise in dealing with nuclear explosions, radiological dispersal, radiation poisoning and the management of personnel in an irradiated environment.

          BREAKING NEWS

  • TEG7
  • Cyber Threats
In response to the Paris & Brussels attacks, Newrisk Ltd has become part of The Exercise Group7. The TEG7 LLP is a dynamic team drawn from cyber & former special defence fields to exercise organisations & governments on emerging terror threats.  The TEG7 profile can be seen at www.teg7.co.uk.  The level of casualties from shooting attacks (as with the Bataclan (France) in 2015; Brussels airport (Belgium), Ataturk airport (Turkey), Nice beach (France) & Berlin Christmas Market (Germany) in 2016; & La Reina Nightclub (Turkey) in 2017) are the result of military style incursions by terrorists determined to maximise casualties.  Home grown terror threats are increasing in many countries - the New York & New Jersey bombs found in 2016 & the numerous disrupted plots in the UK, Germany & France - indicate serious changes in terror capability which may be made more dynamic as ISIS fighters return to their home countries.

Cyber threats are changing from loss of data & privacy to loss of control of business systems & more seriously reconnaissance attacks on critical infrastructure including energy grids.  The fragility of highly connected systems will become more serious in 2017 with open system dependencies (driven by business innovation).   Degraded capacity operations will become essential if persistent attacks affect critical infrastructure.  Exploiting cyber weaknesses are (i) criminals with ransomware & (ii) nation states aiming to disrupt, deter or signal capability against target countries.  The Ukraine power attacks remain a lesson for critical infrastructure losses.  Aviation remains the industry ‘canary’ for cyber failures & cyber forensics must evolve to close open investigations (as in the case of MH370).
