The 12th Chemical Sector Security Summit kicked off on July 16, 2019, in New Orleans, Louisiana brought together government and industry national security experts from all over the country to network and share best practices about chemical security.
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.
