Join HSToday for an exclusive interview with the 2021 Excellence in Outreach winner, the Interagency Security Committee.
The ISC’s mandate is to enhance the quality and effectiveness of security in and the protection of buildings and nonmilitary federal facilities in the United States. Membership in the ISC consists of senior-level executives from 64 federal agencies and departments. To successfully implement ISC polices and standards, the ISC developed the RMP & FSC Training course. This training program assists federal departments and agencies as they implement ISC policies, standards, and recommendations and familiarizes federal departments and agencies with their roles and responsibilities in the risk management of federal facilities. The ISC delivers this training to students across the country at no cost. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this in-person training was converted to a virtual, instructor-led course using the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation (ADDIE) instructional design model. The ISC continues to support capacity building within the federal facility security landscape by offering these in-demand courses. The ISC was created six months after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, and has continued to evolve to meet today’s threat landscape.
