2017 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and The University of Utah invite you to participate in the 2017 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education on October 10-11, at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. This two-day event will include workshop sessions, a tabletop exercise and an after-action review session on preparing participants to respond to a campus emergency. This year’s event will focus on a failure in campus infrastructure caused by cyber-attack. More detailed information on the specific topics for workshops and the tabletop exercise will be available closer to the event.

The event seeks to provide participants with insight into planning, preparedness and resilience best practices for the academic community. Because emergency planning involves a team of individuals from across an institution, we recommend a team of up to five (5) senior leaders representing various functions (i.e. information technology, security, leadership, public safety, student life, communications, etc.) attend from each institution. Participants also will include representatives from federal departments and agencies that support campus resilience.

Foreign nationals are permitted to attend and participate in this informative and interactive learning event.

This event qualifies for CPD credits applicable toward PACC Professional Certification.
