Security and Resiliency Guide: Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Concepts, Common Goals, and Available Assistance

Security and Resiliency Guide Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Annex for Lodging Stakeholders; Security and Resiliency Guide Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Annex for Outdoor Events Stakeholders; Security and Resiliency Guide Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Annex for Public Assembly Stakeholders; Security and Resiliency Guide Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Annex for Sports Leagues and Venues StakeholdersThe Security and Resiliency Guide (SRG C-IED) and annexes are designed to help stakeholders take proactive steps to enhance their security and resiliency for potential IED incidents by providing guidance and resources consistent with broader all-hazards preparedness and risk management principles. Developed in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the guide integrates the contributions of numerous counter-IED (C-IED) subject matter experts, stakeholders, and professional communities. The guide also has five accompanying annexes (Lodging, Outdoor Events, Public Assembly, Sports Leagues and Venues, and Healthcare and Public Health Facility) that provide tailored information specifically for security managers and staff as they seek to improve the preparedness of their venues.

Through the SRG C-IED, security managers and staff can:

  • Gain a better understanding of their existing C-IED practices and needs;
  • Obtain information to support preparedness efforts, such as risk assessments, planning, equipment purchases, and staff training; and
  • Collaborate and communicate more effectively with their venue counterparts, community first responders and government agencies

The guide can help start or continue a conversation about bombing prevention between leadership, security managers, and staff, empowering all members of an organization to play a role in security. If you would like to engage the OBP team in discussion about how you and your team can increase your preparedness to prevent, mitigate, and respond to bombing incidents, please reach out to us at OBP@cisa.dhs.gov or contact CIOCC.physical@cisa.dhs.gov to be connected with your local Protective Security Advisor (PSA).
