Dams Sector: Security Awareness is the second course in the Dams Sector Web-based training series. The purpose of this series of courses is to provide owners and operators with information pertaining to security awareness, protective measures, and crisis management.
This course explains how security awareness is an important component of an overall risk management program. In addition, it provides owners and operators with information that assists in identifying security concerns, coordinating proper response, and establishing effective partnerships with local law enforcement and first responders.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This course is designated as FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY (FOUO) because it contains sensitive but unclassified information. The HSIN-CI Dams Portal serves as the primary mechanism with which dam and levee stakeholders exchange information, both at the For Official Use Only and non-sensitive levels, during steady-state operations. The portal, managed by the Dams Sector-Specific Agency within the Office of Infrastructure Protection / U.S. Department of Homeland Security, promotes effective information collection and dissemination among sector partners in Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as the private sector. The portal provides trusted and vetted public and private representatives, including owners and operators, access to a number of resources, including training courses. HSIN-CS Dams Portal Fact Sheet
