If the moment comes – whether from weapons of mass destruction, terrorism or a hazardous materials incident – The Homeland Security programs maximize responders’ ability to face the challenge while protecting themselves, notifying others and securing the scene. Prepared state and local jurisdictions are more resilient in the face of catastrophic disasters. The program takes an all-hazards approach and is divided into three parts. Customized courses meet the unique needs of municipalities and private sector providers including transportation and petro-chemical industries.

The Executive Programs train senior elected and agency officials about their roles during disasters and in making critical decisions. WMD Programs focus on training multi-disciplinary audiences to manage and respond to incidents including medical emergencies and public health disasters. Preparedness Programs offer training at the local, regional or state level, ranging from emergency management plan development to developing after-action reviews.

Community Cybersecurity AWR136 Essentials of Community Cybersecurity
The Essentials of Community Cybersecurity (ECCS) course provides individuals, community leaders, and first responders with information on how cyber attacks can impact, prevent, and/or stop operations and emergency responses in a community. The course also provides a cursory introduction to cybersecurity vulnerabilities, risks, threats, and countermeasures. It explains vulnerabilities of computer systems and networks and how these vulnerabilities can affect communities, organizations, and daily workplace operations. The course introduces actions communities can take in establishing a cybersecurity program. The course provides participants with an awareness of issues. It gives an overview of threats and vulnerabilities, without going into too many details, to highlight the potential impact a cyber attack could have. Participants discuss some of the fundamental activities needed to develop a cybersecurity program, without addressing the technical details of how to secure critical infrastructures. The course introduces the Community Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CCSMM) as a framework for understanding community cybersecurity and offers a brief introduction to low-cost or no-cost approaches to securing a community against cybersecurity threats and attacks. The course sets the stage for further efforts in which a community can build a cybersecurity program.

Cybersecurity Awareness Online Classes AWR366 Developing a Cyber Security Annex for Incident Response
Cyber-attacks occur more frequently and have become increasingly sophisticated. Cybersecurity events now have the potential to significantly disrupt the business operations of government and critical infrastructure services. Public and private sectors, in the United States, are at increasing and continual risk of surprise attacks from nation-state and non-state actors. (Burgess, 2018)The National Response Framework describes how preparedness can be achieved by developing an incident annex for each hazard. Incident annexes describe coordinating structures used to deliver core capabilities and support response missions unique to a specific type of incident. Incident annexes describe specialized response teams, resources, roles, responsibilities, and other scenario-specific considerations. At the end of this course, participants should possess the fundamentals needed to design and develop a cyber annex for states, locals, tribes, and/or territories (SLTTs). It addresses what the annex is, how it is used, who should participate in the design, implementation, and execution.     This course is offered by the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC) and was developed by the NCPC partner The University of Texas at San Antonio Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (UTSA/CIAS).  The course is funded through the DHS/FEMA Homeland Security National Training Program and is offered at no cost.

Cybersecurity Awareness Online Classes AWR381 Establishing an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization
Cyber-attacks occur more frequently and have become increasingly sophisticated. Cybersecurity events now have the potential to significantly disrupt the business operations of government and critical infrastructure services. Public and private sectors, in the United States, are at increasing and continual risk of surprise attacks from nation-state and non-state actors. (Burgess, 2018)The growing Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) ecosystem provides an opportunity to empower the nation to become more educated and effective in preventing, detecting, and responding to the increasingly sophisticated landscape of cyber threats. There are considerable challenges with the vast quantity of information, the complexities of analysis, and the uncertainties of sharing data with a large network of organizations.In the 2016 National Preparedness Report, 88% of states and territories indicated a high prioritization of cybersecurity, with only a 13% proficiency in that capability. Likewise, 86% of states and territories ranked intelligence and information sharing as a high priority, with a reported 57% proficiency in that capability. The establishment of an ISAO is a critical step to improve both of these capabilities.Executive Order 13691 encourages the formation of ISAOs, and states that “organizations engaged in the sharing of information related to cybersecurity risks and incidents play an invaluable role in the collective cybersecurity of the United States”. At the end of this course, participants should possess the fundamentals needed to design and develop an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) for states, locals, tribes, and/or territories (SLTTs). It addresses what the ISAO is, how it is used, who should participate in the design, implementation, building, and execution.
