Definition Edit

Consequential mitigation refers to pre-planned and coordinated actions designed to reduce or minimize the damages caused by attacks; support and complement first responders; facilitate field-investigation and crisis management response; and, facilitate recovery and reconstitution. Consequence mitigation may also include steps taken to reduce short- and long-term impacts, such as providing alternative sources of supply for critical goods and services.

Overview Edit

Mitigation actions and strategies are intended to reduce the consequences/impacts of an attack, whereas countermeasures are intended to reduce the probability that an attack will succeed in causing a failure or significant damage.
