DHS Hosts New CSAT Top-Screen Demonstration Webinar

This week, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hosted a webinar to demo its new Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Top-Screen. The new Top-Screen – which appears much more “user friendly” than the current Top-Screen – incorporates DHS’s revised tiering methodology and includes several questions currently asked in the CSAT Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA).
DHS did not provide a firm date for the deployment of the new Top-Screen tool but indicated that it will likely be available in Fall 2016. It also remains unknown whether all (or a subset) of facilities will be required to re-submit Top-Screens using the new tool.
