Update on FBI International Symposium on Agroterrorism

About a month and a half ago I wrote a brief blog (see “FBI Symposium on Agroterrorism”) on Symposium on Agroterrorism that the FBI is sponsoring next month. I noted that DHS was not included on the program and suggested that DHS might want to take part and talk about chemical security ‘down on the farm’. Looking at the symposium web site yesterday I noted that DHS is now contributing a team presentation.


On Monday, April 21st, during the second afternoon breakout session there is a topic (Topic #3) entitled: “The Increasing Threat of Agricultural Chemicals”. David Morton and David Reed, DHS, Chemical Security Analysis Center, will be providing the presentation. I’m not sure what that covers exactly, but any outreach to the agricultural sector has to be of some benefit to DHS.
