About This Show
In the security world a "SCIF" ['skiff'] or "Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility" is a special secured room where classified information is processed and shared.
National security expert, Juliette Kayyem, brings you inside the security world in a deeper way. By exploring the planning and decisions behind our own safety--both nationally and locally-- this podcast takes some of the mystery out of what makes us safer.

Episode 103: Building for the Worst Case Scenario
4 days ago
Climate change isn't something that can be debated, but must be mitigated or, failing that, adapted to. How we build our cities for those changes will not only impact our ability to respond to natural disruptions, but arm us with the tools needed to handle any threats that might put our communities at risk. Eric Cesal, “Architecture’s First Responder” is a designer, writer, and noted post-disaster expert, who joins Juliette in The SCIF ['skiff'] to discuss what it takes to build our regions to be more resilient and ready to handle any worst case scenario they might face.
