Security Seminars & Exercises for Chemical Industry Stakeholders

To improve the security and resilience of the chemical industry, the Chemical Sector Specific Agency (SSA) supports requests from chemical industry councils, associations, and emergency management agencies for presentations, training, exhibits, and exercises. The SSA solicits appropriate subject matter experts and regional representatives throughout the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Infrastructure Protection and other agencies. DHS representatives can provide presentations and tabletop exercises on a variety of topics, including active shooter, vehicle-borne improvise explosive devices, and cybersecurity. Participation in events is subject to budget and travel restrictions.
