Governance during a crisis
As with business-as-usual activity, the National Security System operates at three levels during a crisis response:
- The Cabinet National Security Committee – made up of ministers and chaired by the Prime Minister
- The Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination - commonly referred to as ODESC.
- Watch Groups and Working Groups of senior government officials.
