The purpose of the Strategic Risk and Resilience Panel (SRRP) is to provide a rigorous and systematic approach to anticipating and mitigating strategic national security risks.
It promotes resilience by testing, challenging and providing advice to ODESC(G).
Members are appointed by the Chair of ODESC(G), and are selected according to their expertise, rather than as a representative of any specific agency or organisation. The SRRP consists of 7-10 members, mostly from outside government.
The SRRP, which functions as “a critical friend of ODESC(G),” is an independent panel. It will respond to specific tasks or requests for advice from the Chair of ODESC(G) and will provide recommendations accordingly, but it sets its own work programme, agenda and meeting rhythms.
