Free resource will cover physical and cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and best practices for transportation security officials
Washington, D.C., October 3, 2019 — Homeland Security Today, the nation’s leading news and analysis site for homeland security, today announced the re-launch of its transportation security weekly. The Weekly will cover cyber and physical security threats, challenges, and innovations for federal, state, and local government responsible for transportation systems.
“The threats against our nation’s transportation systems continue as we see terrorists and other bad actors target transportation as their choice for attack. I’m excited to work with Homeland Security Today to bring officials across the country the best information to help them understand the threat, find the resources they need to continue their defense of the traveling public, and collaborate to share best practices,” said HSToday Editorial Board member Steve Karoly, former Deputy Assistant Administrator for the Transportation Security Administration’s Office of Security Capabilities and Acting Assistant Administrator for the Office of Requirements and Capabilities Analysis.
HSToday’s Transportation Weekly joins numerous other homeland security-focused weeklies including border security, counterterrorism, cybersecurity, maritime security, emergency management, and the biweekly jobs and training newsletters.
The Government Technology & Services Coalition purchased Homeland Security Today and relaunched the site in January 2018. Since then, the online media outlet has attracted the biggest names in homeland security to write, collaborate, and lead challenging conversations around how to protect America. Over 100,000 people per month visit the site to follow news on the government shutdown and understand its impact on the nation’s security. HSToday also launched a job site for public and private sector employers looking for homeland security-related positions and for those in homeland looking to advance their career.
“We have focused our Editorial Board and content on attracting the best minds in homeland to direct our focus and share their experience with our readers. Our editorial board is packed with those who have served to protect America. Their experience with every facet of our homeland’s security is unmatched,” said Executive Editor Kristina Tanasichuk. “We’re excited to bring that level of expertise to protecting our transportation systems.”
The Transportation Security Weekly and all of HSToday’s weeklies are free. More information is available at: www.HSToday.us/newsletters-signup
