DHS Resiliency Oversight of Private Sector Needs Work, Report Finds – CQ Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security has improved its ability to assess vulnerability and risk at critical infrastructure and key resource sites, but it needs work in its system of measuring how well the owners of those facilities address security gaps, according to a new GAO report.

The report found that the Protective Security Advisory Program, which deploys critical in structure and security strategists to assist the owners of facilities and sites by providing protection guidelines, lacks updated guidelines concerning resiliency.
