Presented: DHS Risk Assessments Informs Owners and Operators of Critical Infrastructure

Following its recent release, the “DHS Risk Assessments Inform Owner and Operator Protection Efforts and Departmental Strategic Planning” will be reported at this year’s Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience North America at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida from the 5th-7th December 2017.

Landis Lindsey, Senior Analyst at the US Government Accountability Office (GAO), was the senior analyst in charge for GAO’s DHS Risk Assessments report and will present a review of the reports findings where the GAO was asked to review DHS’s risk assessment practices for critical infrastructure.

This report describes:(1) DHS’s risk assessment practices in 3 of 16 critical infrastructure sectors and private sector representatives’ views on the utility of this risk information, and (2) how this risk information influences DHS’s strategic planning and private sector outreach.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) primarily conducts assessments for each of the three elements of risk—threat, vulnerability, and consequence for critical infrastructures from the three sectors the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reviewed—Critical Manufacturing; Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste; and Transportation Systems. In limited circumstances, DHS generates risk assessments that both incorporate all three elements of risk and cover individual or multiple subsectors.

These assessments help critical infrastructure owners and operators take actions to improve security and mitigate risks. Six private sector representatives told GAO that threat information is the most useful type of risk information because it allows owners and operators to react immediately to improve their security posture.
