DHS Announces 2010 Chemical Sector Security Summit

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Monday announced its 2010 Chemical Sector Security Summit, to take place July 7 and 8 in Baltimore, Maryland. The summit is co-sponsored by DHS's Office of Infrastructure Protection and the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council.

The annual Chemical Sector Security Summit is a chance for members of the security industry to network and share information with other professionals, as well as to ask questions specific to chemical security. In particular, DHS expects significant discussion surrounding the current version of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) as well as the future of chemical security, including the recent passage of H.R. 2868 by the House of Representatives. The Summit should be particularly important for those involved with corporate and facility security, health and safety, and the transportation of chemical products. Key topics of discussion will include:
  • Agency Update on Chemical Security Regulations;
  • Chemical Industry Resiliency;
  • Cybersecurity; and
  • Industry Practices
