EPRO EMP Handbook

The idea of a massive EMP strike disrupting electronic infrastructure across the globe does sound scary – you may have even seen it portrayed in books, movies, and television. But, don’t be fooled as they are far from a sci-fi fiction doomsday scenario. In fact, natural EMPs have indeed caused debilitating EMP interferences in the past and could always strike again. 

You may be thinking: well, we survived in the past, so what’s different now? 

The short answer? Everything. 

Our reliance on electricity for the normal functioning of the world and critical infrastructures is at an all-time high – this means that any sufficiently powerful EMP (natural or artificial) can temporarily deactivate the electronic devices we rely on so heavily. And, if extremely energetic, these devices might even suffer permanent damage. 

In other words, a powerful EMP could knock out major electrical power grids for weeks or even months. 

So, what can we do? 

To start, learn what steps we need to take to secure our future. And you can do this by downloading our ERPO EMP Handbook!

Together, we can work to secure our future.


Climate Clash: Unmasking the Threat to Critical Infrastructure Resilience

Climate change is undeniably one of the most pressing challenges of our time, with far-reaching consequences for ecosystems, societies, and economies. Often discussions about climate change conjure images of melting ice caps, rising sea levels, and the difficulty of polar bears. However, there exists a crucial yet less-discussed facet of climate change – its profound […]
