The 2010 Chemical Sector Security Summit began this week in Baltimore, Maryland. The two-day event, sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (CSCC), is designed for chemical industry, security, and health/safety/environmental professionals, and provides a forum for attendees to exchange information and network with government agencies, industry colleagues, and security professionals.
