2009 Chemical Sector Security Summit

Type:  News  


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP), as the Chemical Sector-Specific Agency (SSA), and the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC) co-sponsored the recent 2009 Chemical Sector Security Summit in Baltimore, Maryland.
The three-day event, which wrapped up on July 1, attracted approximately 350 participants, including a diverse array of chemical stakeholder partners, such as industry owners and operators; federal, state, and local officials; Congressional staff members; and representatives from the international community. More than 70 percent of the participants at this year's summit hailed from the private sector, while 28 percent came from federal, state, and local government.
Now in its third year, the annual event provides an open forum for Department officials and the private sector to work together to share information within the confines of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan Partnership (NIPP) Framework.
Plenary sessions and breakout workshops included presentations and discussions on Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS); threats to the homeland and chemical sector; state and local issues; industry practices; and cybersecurity, among others. 
Organizers demonstrated several IP programs, including the Voluntary Chemical Assessment Tool, TRIPwire, and the Site Security Plan during the course of the summit. For further information, please see the Summit Presentations page.
