The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) hosted the

2012 Critical Infrastructure Symposium

EMPact America helped to sponsor this symposium, because the efforts of the participants of this symposium are an important part of the process of building resiliency into our nation's critical infrastructures.

The Critical Infrastructure Symposium is a collaborative learning community comprised of students, educators, practitioners and government officials all engaged in developing the next generation of critical infrastructure protection and resilience leadership, technologies and strategies. The Symposium is about the integration of policy, engineering and asset protection with economics, insurance, security and everything else to form a coherent whole. As such, the theme for the 2012 Symposium was "Full Spectrum Resilience."

Date: April 23 and 24, 2012

Location: Arlington, Virginia

About TISP:

Shortly following the tragic events of September 11, 2011, eleven professional and technical organizations and federal agencies formed The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) as a non-profit partnership to be a national asset facilitating dialogue on domestic infrastructure security and offering sources of technical support and sources for comment on public policy, related to the security of the nation's built environment.

TISP is a national leader in infrastructure security and resiliency with a diverse membership supporting the nation's economy and well being of its people. TISP pledges to lead public-and private-sector collaboration that advances the practice and policies of infrastructure security and resiliency to sustain the nation's resources and its ability to efficiently restore infrastructure when disrupted by any hazard.
