HOMELAND SECURITY TASK FORCE
As a critical part of the nation's infrastructure, real estate continues to face an array of threats from natural catastrophes, international and domestic terrorism, criminal activity, cyber-attacks and border security. To address such threats, the Roundtable continues to help build a more secure and resilient industry against both physical and cyber threats.
The HSTF meets regularly and coordinates briefings with representatives from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other state and local agencies to discuss potential threats to the sector and to enhance risk mitigation. Our work also continues with the DHS' Commercial Facility Sector Coordinating Council.
In addition to working with relevant law enforcement and intelligence agencies, the HSTF is working to find new sources and methods to secure high-profile commercial facility sector assets and improve their emergency preparedness.
Special sessions of our Homeland Security Task Force (HSTF) have been held recently in the FBI's Strategic Information and Operations Center (SIOC), at the World Trade Center in New York and the New York Field Office of the FBI. The HSTF works with many of the key leaders in the nation's fight against terrorism.
