DHS and CSCC to Host Chemical Security Seminar in July

The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Infrastructure Protection and the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC) announced earlier this year that they will co-host the 2010 Chemical Sector Security Summit July 7-8, in Baltimore, Maryland. Attendance is free of charge.

The annual Chemical Sector Security Summit is an opportunity for security professionals with a need to know the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) or other chemical security- or transportation security-related issues to exchange information with other members of industry. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn the latest status of CFATS and pending chemical security legislation, as well as to gain insight into the role of various government agencies and departments with a hand in chemical and transportation security. Of note, the Summit will include some discussion of lessons-learned during the very first CFATS inspections that have occurred early this year. A preliminary agenda can be found here. Interested parties can register here.
