Operational resilience, management and operations, science and technology, research and development, workforce development and training are all at the core of what we do at Associated Universities, Incorporated (AUI). Today, AUI and AUI Labs collaborate with the governmental, educational, and scientific communities to plan, build, and operate cutting-edge research and development facilities. To become one of the most secure management and operations contractors, AUI has incubated the Operational Resilience Group (ORG) to directly monitor, analyze, manage, and provide real-time response for increased critical infrastructure protection and recovery when cybersecurity, physical security, natural, biological, or man-made events occur. The ORG’s goal is to work with your team to provide operational resilience through a proven approach that creates and implements an Operational Resilience Framework to protect and enable your critical infrastructure and vital resource sets. Our resilience-focused approach is agile, adaptive, based on exacting business standards, and directly applicable to critical infrastructure and enterprise resources.

Operational resilience is associated with processes, teams, infrastructure, information systems, devices, sensors, and equipment that all connect across networks and includes the unique ability to interact with the physical world. Examples include, systems supporting power generation and distribution, financial systems, manufacturing, water treatment, oil and gas, weapons platforms, airports, hospitals, logistics, building automation, and more.

Meet Our Team

Our Operational Resilience Group consists of Mr. Steven Bankhead, Dr. Robert Emmel, and Mr. L. Craig Foster.
