IDFA members are invited to participate this fall in a series of critical infrastructure webinars offered for free by the Department of Homeland Security and a consortium of state and local organizations. Each hour-long session is designed to help staff in their efforts to enhance the security and resilience of critical infrastructure assets and the communities surrounding them.
- The first webinar, “Preparedness,” will be offered September 23 and September 30. It will help private industry and government partners to enhance preparation and resilience efforts.
- The second webinar, “Cybersecurity Awareness,” will be held October 21 and October 23. It will provide background information about reviewing cyber resilience capabilities, improving information sharing and evaluating security needs for protecting local and regional cyber assets.
- The third webinar, “Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience,” will be held November 18 and November 20. It will focus on tools and resources that are available for improving the overall security of a critical infrastructure asset or facility.

IDFA has played a critical role in the Food and Agricultural Sector Coordinating Council, a presidentially mandated partnership between government and the private sector, since its formation by the Department of Homeland Security 11 years ago. This partnership between government and critical infrastructure/key resource owners and operators provides a forum in which they can engage in a broad spectrum of activities to support and coordinate critical infrastructure protection.
