Yesterday the DHS ICS-CERT made some additional changes to the CFATS Knowledge Center page in support of their on-going implementation of revisions to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program’s Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) known as CSAT 2.0. Those changes centered on removing links to the older CSAT documents in the ‘Documentation’ section at the bottom of the page.
The documents removed included:
This links were still good as of 7:30 EDT this morning. If you need copies of these documents for historical purposes you need to get them as soon as possible. There is no telling how long these documents will remain.
Old Documents Still Remaining
The ‘Documentation’ section of the CFATS Knowledge Center has been getting kind of bloated over time. There are a number of useful documents listed here that cannot be found anywhere else on the site without the links provided here. There are, however, a number of documents that could still be removed. Those include:
The CFATS Quarterly is not the most recent (the April 2016 issue is also listed and I have not seen anything more recent). It might be nice to have a CFATS Quarterly web page where links to all of the issues might be found, but only if these are going to be released on a routine (quarterly?) basis. The two CFATS fact sheets are from somewhere in the middle of this series of documents; a similar historical web page might be of limited use. The personnel surety program (PSP) documents are dated, they could be better listed on PSP website under an historical documents listing. And the last is a link to a website not a ‘document’ and that page is already listed on the CFATS landing page.
