Global terrorism is arguably the most urgent issue facing the security industry, and the world, today. Now more than ever, protecting our nation's infrastructure is critical.

Topics focus on the threat to government and the private sector.

Examine future terrorist operations and likely changes in tactics and strategy. You'll hear from experts representing critical U.S. infrastructure as they discuss the vulnerabilities of their particular sector, what this means to the public and private sectors, and what is being done to mitigate the risk. Industries to be examined include telecommunications, transportation, media, energy, water, defense, banking and finance, agriculture, sporting venues, shopping malls, and public health. Other sessions focus on the recent slate of threats facing the U.S. domestically today including snipers, bombings, anthrax, school violence, cyber attacks, suicide bombers, and chemical and nuclear weapons. Sponsored by the ASIS Council on Global Terrorism, Political Instability and International Crime.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT: THE INCIDENT RESPONSE PLAN

Fees: $685 ASIS Members; $840 Nonmembers

With the reality of terrorism, the possibility of war, and the continued threat of natural disasters, every organization must have a comprehensive disaster management plan that is ready to roll at a moment's notice. An incident response plan is a critical component, but unless you've tested it in an emergency situation, you can't be sure of its effectiveness. Whether dealing with a brief business interruption or a worst-case scenario as we experienced on September 11th, the extent of your preparation could determine the future of your business...your employees... and your assets. Sponsored by tire ASIS Disaster Management Council

How you will benefit:

* Learn how to develop an effective incident response plan.

* Evaluate your plan through testing and exercise.

* Understand the importance of providing leadership for a corporate incident response plan development effort, and the key role you play.
