CSAT 2.0 Update – 10-19-16

Today the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) continued updating their Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program web pages to reflect the on-going implementation of their Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) 2.0. Today’s changes were mostly housekeeping with no new information.

The vast majority of the changes made today were adding links for the previously published CSAT 2.0 Portal User Manual and the CSAT 2.0 Survey Application User Manual. Links had previously been provided on the CFATS Knowledge Center web page. Interestingly, I recently learned that that is the only page that ISCD actually controls. It seems that some higher-level organization (probably the National Protection and Programs Directorate – NPPD) within DHS has an office that maintains web pages for subordinate offices.

There were some deletions from the web sites. These deletions were also housekeeping in nature. For example, the CFATS Tiering Methodology web page had the links removed for registration to participate in last week’s two webinars on the CSAT 2.0 Application, the Top Screen and SVA-SSP tools. I would have wished that they had replaced those with links to the recorded version of the webinars. Here are the links that I have for those webinars (they are still active as of the writing of this post):

Note: These are all presented using Adobe Connect so Adobe Flash Player must be enabled to view the webinars. I know…. I really wish that the DHS cybersecurity folks would explain the security problems with Flash Player to the DHS management so that some other presentation tool would be used.
