CISA has developed a baseline security self-assessment that is designed for a person, with little to no security experience, to complete a security assessment.
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Washington Redskins held a joint tabletop exercise yesterday with local law enforcement and first responders to review and test plans to respond to a public safety emergency FedExField. Exercise participants discussed security measures in place at the stadium, employee training, evacuation and traffic management plans, and public messaging during and after a potential incident. Today’s exercise was not in a response to any specific threat, but was part of an ongoing collaborative relationship between CISA and the Redskins to keep fans in and around the stadium safe.
This fact sheet explains the chemical facility data available to law enforcement, first responders, and other emergency managers to help with planning, incident preparedness, and response efforts to chemical incidents in their communities.
This printer-friendly fact sheet covers two overarching security objectives—detection and delay—which include the first seven Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS), and address a facility’s ability to deter, detect, and delay an attack.
RBPS 9 – Response is the performance standard that addresses the development and exercising of an emergency plan to respond to security incidents.
