Effectively responding to modern disasters and humanitarian emergencies requires a substantial amount of connectivity. Whether for cloud, social media, GIS, or other critical access, emergency managers increasingly rely upon Internet access as a key service alongside traditional emergency and humanitarian support, such as search and rescue and medical support.

This talk discussed HFNs, and the evolution of security on these networks using examples from Hurricane Katrina to the ongoing Ebola Virus crisis in West Africa.
