DHS Frameworks for Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience


Hosted by TISP Committee for Emergency Preparedness

Tuesday,  February 25, 2014
1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. EST
1.5 PDHs
 

Join this webinar to understand the consequences and cascading risks caused by natural and man-made disasters and to develop a mitigation strategy and recovery plan for mission assurance and greater regional resilience.

In February 2013, President Obama issued Executive Order (EO) 13636 on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, highlighting the need to augment our existing focus on managing critical infrastructure risk. In response, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released the 2013 National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP): Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a voluntary framework for reducing cyber risks, to be issued in February 2014.  To support adoption of the Framework, DHS is establishing a voluntary program in mid-February of this year.

This webinar will highlight how companies and agencies can work jointly at the state, regional and local levels to inventory their infrastructure and better understand the consequences and cascading risks caused by natural and manmade disasters and to develop a mitigation strategy and recovery plan for mission assurance and greater regional resilience. A Q&A discussion will be held at the end of the presentation.
