Energy & Chemical Companies
Modern society requires a source of low cost, accessible energy in order to function. Keeping that energy safe and accessible is of critical importance. Any disruptions be they environmental, economic, or political; natural disasters, the volatile nature of market prices, sudden embargoes, and the actions of military forces and terrorist factions can all produce energy crises in nations that are unprepared for such contingencies.
In order to effectively address these threats, federal governments and chemical facilities must closely work together. The Department of Homeland Security established the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) as a way to improve the integrity of security measures in industrial facilities that use or produce high-risk chemicals. CFATS requires each of these chemical facilities to assess their operation’s inherent vulnerabilities and implement security plans that directly address them. By utilizing a third party to vet and assess the success in implementation of CFATS (and other standards), along with developing risk reduction measures and developing plans to counter terrorism, financial fraud, cyber-security issues, espionage, and other relevant security threats, an energy company can ensure they are well placed for whatever threats they may face.
