CISA Webinar on Protecting Against UAS

Earlier this week the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency announced that the Interagency Security Committee (ISC) would be holding a webinar on “Protecting Against the Threat of Unmanned Aircraft Systems” next Thursday. The webinar is based upon their publication from last November of the same name.

The webinar web page makes an important point about UAS mitigation issues:

“Although most agencies do not have the authority to disable, disrupt, or seize control of an unmanned aircraft, there are other effective risk reduction measures they may implement. This webinar will provide best practices from the ISC’s UAS publication that any organization or facility can use to mitigate UAS threats.”

The ISC is a collaborative organization that provides leadership to the nonmilitary federal community supporting physical security programs that are comprehensive and risk based, though much of their work would be applicable to critical infrastructure facilities. I was a little concerned that this webinar might be somewhat restricted, but my registration was approved without apparent question.

Anyone interested in watching the webinar (which should be anyone with security responsibilities that may include protecting against UAS incursions and attacks) can register for the webinar here.
