DHS Updates 2011 CSSS Page – Presentations Available

Today the DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection updated their web page for the 2011 Chemical Sector Security Summit, adding links to many of the presentations from the CSSS. It will take a while before I have a chance to review all of the presentations; I’ll report on the ones that appear to be of interest.

There are limitations, however, in these presentations. They are the slide presentations that were shown at the Summit, not the actual presentations. A good presenter provides much more detail in the verbal portion of their presentation than can be put into a slide. This is the reason that I have been banging the drum to encourage DHS to make videos of the presentations and putting them up on the web.

I wrote in an earlier post about an indication that DHS was going to be attempting to do this for one of the presentations at the CSSS. Well, there is nothing on the new page that indicates that DHS has done so. It could be that the post-production work on the video is still underway and it will be posted at a later date. If that is the case, I am happy to have DHS post the easier to process slide presentations. Of course, it would be nice if they mentioned that the video was in progress. At the very least it would keep people like me from picking at them.

As always, if there are readers who were present (or even better presenters) that want to share their views about any of the presentations, drop me a line or post your comments to this post.
