ISCD Updates CVI Pages?

It seems that ISCD is going through a review process on their CFATS related web pages. You can see this by observing the “This page was last reviewed / modified on ….” on the bottom of many of their pages (more on their pages than just about anywhere else in DHS). Today the review took place on the landing page for the CFATS Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) program. As far as I can tell there were no substantive changes made on this page.

Now this is one of the pages that I try to check every business day, looking for updates on the program; particularly the overdue changes expected in response to President Obama’s Executive Order 13556 on Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). I don’t typically take time to check all of the links on the page (and they are quite numerous on this particular page) unless the date on the bottom of the page changes; like today.

When I checked each link today, I found that one of those pages had been changed reviewed/changed back in January; the Training for Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information page. Again, I didn’t see any significant changes on this page, but I did note something of concern; all of the links to the CVI training program were dead links, returning a “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage” notice. I don’t know if other browsers can access the sites.

Hopefully someone in ISCD will notice this problem and correct the links. Probably not, they seem to be worrying about other things lately.
