Available Online – Free! In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these events is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attack events, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on the scene.Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such an event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active attack event is three minutes. Without effective, pre-planned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes. This course was designed in conjunction with Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) to provide first responders and other professionals with a model response program they can deliver to civilians within their communities.

Cybersecurity 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 was developed by the University of Texas at San Antonio Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security through the DHS/FEMA Homeland Security National Training Program.

Cybersecurity 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).

Available Online – Free! In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these events is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attack events, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on the scene.Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such an event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active attack event is three minutes. Without effective, pre-planned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes. This course was designed in conjunction with Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) to provide first responders and other professionals with a model response program they can deliver to civilians within their communities. May also be referred to as Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events Train-the-Trainer (CRASE).This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for #3312. Show less

Available Online – Free! In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these events is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attack events, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on the scene.Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such an event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active attack event is three minutes. Without effective, pre-planned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes. This course was designed in conjunction with Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) to provide first responders and other professionals with a model response program they can deliver to civilians within their communities. May also be referred to as Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events Train-the-Trainer (CRASE).This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for #3312. Show less
