Dams Sector: Protective Measures is the third course in the Dams Sector Web-based training series. The purpose of this series of courses is to provide owners and operators as well as other dam and levee stakeholders with information pertaining to security awareness, protective measures, and crisis management.
IS-872 Dam Sector: Protective Measures addresses protective measures related to physical, cyber, and human elements, and describes the importance of these measures as components of an overall risk management program. The training course describes the basic elements of the risk management model, and discusses the steps required to develop and implement an effective protective program.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This course is designated as “FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY (FOUO)” because it contains sensitive but unclassified information. The HSIN-CS Dams Portal serves as the primary mechanism with which dam and levee stakeholders exchange information, both at the ‘For Official Use Only’ and non-sensitive levels, during steady-state operations. The portal, managed by the Dams Sector-Specific Agency within the Office of Infrastructure Protection / U.S. Department of Homeland Security, promotes effective information collection and dissemination among sector partners in Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as the private sector. The portal provides trusted and vetted public and private representatives, including owners and operators, access to a number of resources, including training courses. HSIN-CS Dams Portal Fact Sheet
