The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) is offering a course for practitioners managing physical and cybersecurity. The course is the result of a partnership between TEEX, NPPD IP, NPPD Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, and the FEMA National Training and Education Division. The course, MGT 452 – Physical and Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure, encourages collaborative efforts among individuals and organizations responsible for both physical and cybersecurity toward development of integrated risk management strategies that lead to enhanced capabilities necessary for the protection of our Nation’s critical infrastructure.
Participants will identify physical and cybersecurity concerns impacting overall infrastructure security posture, examine integrated physical and cybersecurity incidents and the evolving risks and impacts they pose to critical infrastructure, and explore resources that can be applied to improve security within an organization, business, or government entity. The target audience is critical infrastructure owners and operators and individuals responsible for physical and/or cybersecurity within their organization, including Federal, State, local, regional, tribal, and territorial government officials, and owners and operators of small businesses and nonprofit organizations. This instructor-led course is eight hours in length and offers 0.8 continuing education units (CEUs). For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
