The latest business continuity news from around the world

Infranetics, which is a combination of infrastructures and cybernetics, is highlighted as a possible new framework for managing resilience and business continuity, amongst other areas, according to a new academic paper.

The paper, ‘Infranetics – A new umbrella MABICS-converging technologies science for infrastructures design, resilience and business continuity management’ was written by S. A. Timashev from the Ural Federal University, Yekaterinburg, Russia.

MABICS is the convergence of a number of disciplines, namely digital stochastic mechanics and design, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, information technology, cognitive and social sciences. Infranetics is based on MABICS, using information from each of its component areas.

In terms of resilience and business continuity management, the paper concludes that the structure of infranetics allows organizations to:

  • Work out the correct managerial decisions ‘in conditions of various types of dynamic and black-swan uncertainties’, and
  • Accurately predict the ‘behavior of complex bio-sociotechnological and economic-technical systems that are designed or operate in conventional, specific and / or catastrophic situations’.
