Protecting and ensuring the resiliency of the critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) of the United States is essential to the Nation’s security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life.
The purpose of this course is to present an overview of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). The NIPP provides the unifying structure for the integration of existing and future CIKR protection and resiliency efforts into a single national program. This course has been updated to align with the NIPP that was released in 2009.
You can access a copy of the NIPP by clicking on the following link NIPP. (http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/NIPP_Plan.pdf)
The course is intended for DHS and other Federal staff responsible for implementing the NIPP, and Tribal, State, local and private sector emergency management professionals. The course is also designed to teach potential security partners about the benefits of participating in the NIPP.
