The Symposium is growing to become the most important annual gathering in the Western Hemisphere for experts and institutions promoting critical infrastructure protection and resilience (CIP/R) programs and professional services. Its main goals are to:
  • Promote the exchange of ideas and experiences among students, educators, practitioners, and government officials developing CIP/R programs and professional services.
  • Offer Full Spectrum Resilience training and professional development to educators and practitioners.
  • Strengthen CIP/R professional, research, and educational  networks and establishing a broader CIP/R community of practice.

TCIS 2012 in Alexandria, VA
We hope that each of you walked away with greater knowledge of critical infrastructure, current issues, lessons learned and obtained valuable information that can be shared with others in the future.
The Regional Disaster Resilience Guide
2011 Edition
The 2011 Regional Disaster Resilience (RDR) Guide for Developing an Action Plan (Guide) released in October is an updated and expanded version of the original guide published in June, 2006 by The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP). Like its predecessor, the updated guide is a beneficial and usable tool that enables practitioners and experts from government, the private sector, and other interested organizations to develop and operationalize an actionable strategy and ongoing process to collectively improve capabilities to withstand major events and disasters in today’s complex and interdependent world. The Guide is $25.00 per copy.
*Please note that the Resiliency ToolKit will be available shortly. We are in the process of re-designing the TISP website and our current site does not have the capabilities or resources to support the online toolkit. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Building Resilient Regions and Infrastructure through Risk-Based Mitigation:
Determining the Priorities & Making the Investments
Booz Allen Hamilton

Washington, DC
The workshop series began at the offices of Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, D.C., on September 7, 2012, at 8:15 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. It focused on resources provided by the Federal Government to states and public private partnerships which are intended to support Whole Community. It was a great success!! Thank you to all participants and attendees for making this Workshop a great event and a motivational kickoff to this series!
The majority of the workshop series, held at six to eight cities in West Coast, Southeast, Midwest and Northern regions of the nation, will focus on regional, community, and infrastructure resilience challenges associated with impeding a reduction of the impacts caused by disastrous hazards (flooding, tornados and hurricanes, earthquakes, pandemic illness, economic failure, weapons of mass destruction, etc.).
TISP will document the workshop series in a Final Report to include discussion highlights, sited resources for planning and education, and a set of recommended actions for public sector and private sector stakeholders.


The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP), Security Analysis and Risk Management Association (SARMA), and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) have co-found—along with 17 associations, professional societies, regional and state partnerships, an
The UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Disaster Risk Reduction, Margareta Wahlström, today welcomed the US City of San Francisco as both a role model and the first major US city to join the Making Cities Resilient Campaign.
On April 23–24, The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) held The 2012 Critical Infrastructure Symposium at the Arlington Hilton Hotel in Arlington, Va.
Over the last decade, a tremendous body of knowledge and experience has evolved and enhanced the design of the National Homeland Security Strategy (2007) and corresponding policies.
While the federal government is making regional and community resilience a top homelandsecurity priority, federal funding has dramatically dried up for most critical infrastructureprotection and disaster preparedness/mitigation programs.
As the emergency management community1 looks toward 2030, one thing is certain – the world will not look the same as it does today. Shifting demographics and the rate of technological innovation will challenge the way we plan and communicate
