Homeland Security Advisory Committee Meeting, 1/10/06

Filed under: DHS News,Infrastructure Protection — by Christian Beckner on December 18, 2005

The Federal Register reports on Monday that the next meeting of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) will be held on January 10, 2006 at the Mandarin Oriental in DC. A portion of the meeting will be open to the public. The agenda:

At the upcoming meeting, the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) will receive reports from the Critical Infrastructure Task Force and the Prevention of the Entry of Weapons of Mass Effect on American Soil Task Force. It also will receive updates from the Private Sector Information Sharing and Fusion Center Task Forces. Additionally, the HSAC will receive detailed briefings covering specific critical infrastructure vulnerabilities, interdependencies, infrastructure resilience, and vulnerability mitigation. The HSAC will also hold roundtable deliberations and discussions among HSAC members, including discussions regarding administrative matters.

Here is the link to the final report from the Private Sector Information Sharing Task Force, released in August 2005; and here is an earlier progress report from the Critical Infrastructure Task Force released in June 2005. I can’t find similarly detailed information on the other two task forces.
