Misc DHS Web Page Updates 07-02-01

Over the last 24 hours or so there have been a number of DHS web pages updated that might be of interest to the chemical security community. One major change was made to the DHS CSAT FAQ page, but I will cover that in a separate blog post because of the extent and importance of that change. The changes that I will address here are less extensive. Those changes were made to the following web sites:
Private Sector Office web page, updated 07-01-10 Critical Infrastructure Protection landing page, updated 07-02-10 Control Systems Security Program web page, updated 07-02-10
Private Sector Office DHS added a new link on this web page for the Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep). This is a new program recently announced by Secretary Napolitano to provide a voluntary certification program for private sector efforts to ensure resiliency and enhance their ability to respond to natural or man-made disasters. There isn’t much information on this page yet beyond links to the three certification programs:
● ASIS International SPC.1-2009, Organizational Resilience; ● British Standards Institution 25999 (2007 Edition), Business Continuity Management; and ● National Fire Protection Association 1600; Standard on Disaster / Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs
Critical Infrastructure Protection DHS added a new link on this page to subscribe to the ‘NIPP Newsletter’. No information was provided on the newsletter. Signing up will allow DHS to send you a copy of the newsletter. When I get my first issue I’ll let you know what it is all about. Control Systems Security Program DHS added a new link on this page to a new publication by the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT). This two-page publication, Incident Handling: Preparing for Incident Analysis, provides guidance on “recommended practices for developing incident response capabilities necessary to collect data and perform follow-on actions to restore your systems to normal operations” (pg 1).
