Description: This course will introduce participants to the key terms, policy, guidance, and preparedness efforts required to safeguard the Nation's critical infrastructure. Participants will review applicable policy and guidance, discuss the risk management framework, describe Federal critical infrastructure security and resilience and information sharing programs, and relate critical infrastructure programs to individual actions.

Primary focus will be placed on local preparedness efforts as they relate to the national approach to critical infrastructure security and resilience. An understanding of the national approach to critical infrastructure enables critical infrastructure stakeholders to address local planning within a common framework. Informed planning is consistent with and expands on nationally accepted emergency management standards as the basis for planning across the mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
