ChemLock: Special Access to CISA Services

In addition to the ChemLock services and tools that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) provides specific to chemical security, CISA offers a variety of other resources and tools that facilities with dangerous chemicals may also find useful.

For a full listing of all of CISA Services, please see the CISA Services Catalog, Second Edition (PDF, 8.7 MB).

Chemical Sector

The Department of Homeland Security—identified as the Chemical Sector Risk Management Agency (SRMA) in Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 21—leads the Chemical Sector’s public-private partnership and works with companies to develop tools and resources that enhance the sector’s security and resilience. To learn more, visit the Chemical Sector webpage.

Cybersecurity Resources

CISA offers a range of no-cost cybersecurity assessments that evaluate operational resilience, cybersecurity practices, organizational management of external dependencies, and other key elements of a robust and resilient cyber framework. To learn more, visit the Cyber Resources Hub webpage.

CISA also offers several scanning and testing services to help organizations reduce their exposure to threats by taking a proactive approach to mitigating attack vectors. To learn more, visit the Cyber Hygiene Services webpage.

Active Shooter Preparedness

Active shooter incidents are often unpredictable and evolve quickly. In the midst of the chaos, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. To learn more, visit the Active Shooter Preparedness webpage.

Insider Threat

Insider threat incidents are possible in any sector or organization. The information and resources available from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will help individuals, organizations, and communities create or improve an existing insider threat mitigation program. To learn more, visit the Insider Threat Mitigation webpage.

Bomb-Making Materials Awareness Program (BMAP)

CISA’s BMAP focuses on restricting access to bomb-making materials and explosive precursor chemicals by promoting awareness and reporting of suspicious activity to prevent the intentional misuse of common consumer goods used to make improvised explosive devices (IEDs). To learn more visit the BMAP webpage.

Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Training and Awareness

CISA’s Office for Bombing Prevention develops and delivers a diverse curriculum of training and awareness products to reduce the risk to our nation’s critical infrastructure. To learn more, visit the Counter-IED Training and Awareness webpage.
