The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel (HSSP) will examine progress made in advancing homeland security over the past decade and discuss a continued path forward at its Tenth Plenary Meeting: Achievements from the Past Decade and Charting the Path Forward, to be held on November 9 in Arlington, VA.
In support of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate, the ANSI-HSSP works to accelerate the development of voluntary standards for homeland security and emergency preparedness. Recent work of the ANSI-HSSP has tackled aviation, borders and maritime security, crisis management, and global supply chain security, as well as emergency preparedness for small businesses and persons with disabilities.
The Tenth Plenary Meeting will review homeland security standards in the decade following 9/11, with moderated panels examining some of the standards that were developed, others on the horizon, and gap areas that may exist. The plenary will also feature speakers on the future of homeland security standards and potential areas for future ANSI-HSSP exploration. Participants will also view a poster exhibition highlighting standards contributions to homeland security.November 10 Workshop
