DHS Announces NIAC Resilience and Cyber Meeting

On Friday the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) published a meeting notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 40487-40488) for the National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) on July 29th, 2013. The public meeting will be held in Washington, D.C.

According to the notice there are two items on the agenda:

• A presentation from the NIAC Regional Resilience Working Group documenting their work to date on the Regional Resilience Study; and
• Federal officials will update the members on the Federal inter-agency implementation planning for the recently issued Executive Order 13636 and Presidential Policy Directive 21.

The Council will discuss both presentations and prepare recommendations for the Secretary on how to proceed with each. A copy of the Working Group presentation will be available on the NIAC web site one week before the meeting. The Department will also provide guidance to the Council on potential new topics for discussion.

NPPD is soliciting public input on the agenda topics.
