The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Washington Redskins held a joint tabletop exercise yesterday with local law enforcement and first responders to review and test plans to respond to a public safety emergency FedExField. Exercise participants discussed security measures in place at the stadium, employee training, evacuation and traffic management plans, and public messaging during and after a potential incident. Today’s exercise was not in a response to any specific threat, but was part of an ongoing collaborative relationship between CISA and the Redskins to keep fans in and around the stadium safe.
As part of the effort to #Protect2020, CISA is working with national partners to build resilience to foreign interferences, particularly information activities (e.g., disinformation, misinformation). The Department views foreign interference as malign actions taken by foreign governments or actors designed to sow discord, manipulate public discourse, discredit the electoral system, bias the development of policy, or disrupt markets for the purpose of undermining the interests of the United States and its allies. Responding to foreign interference requires a whole of society approach.

Many people think of a house of worship as a safe area where violence and emergencies cannot affect them.
