The scenario described in WaterISAC's "Three Steps to Better Security at a Critical Infrastructure Facility" posting exemplifies some of the great community efforts between facility operators, law enforcement agencies, and other partners to further critical infrastructure security. These efforts also include the 3rd Annual Security and Risk Management Symposium, which WaterISAC attended last week in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Presenters at the event praised efforts that build critical infrastructure security and resilience by developing key relationships, noting that such activities had contributed to the effective response during the Tree of Life tragedy in Pittsburgh on October 27. The symposium was sponsored by the Pennsylvania Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and the Pennsylvania Region 13 Task Force, with the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority leading the planning and execution of the event. Other event partners included: American Water, Pennsylvania American Water, AWWA, Pennsylvania AWWA, Pennsylvania WARN, Texas AWWA, Texas WARN, PWEA, NACWA, E-ISAC, NERC, DHS, and the FBI, among others.
