The Public Private Partnership Security and Resilience Seminar Series Returns for Another Year

BOISE, ID The Idaho Office of Emergency Management (IOEM) is excited to announce the 2024 Public Private Partnership Security and Resilience Seminar Series, an educational initiative aimed at enhancing community preparedness and resilience. Sponsored by IOEM, this series is a collaborative effort with the Oregon Department of Emergency Management, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and Albertsons Companies, involving volunteer speakers with lived experience on key business and industry security and resilience topics.

Building on the success of the 2023 PSPR2 Seminar Series, which attracted widespread international participation, the 2024 series promises to deliver an even more dynamic and informative program. Featuring subject matter experts from industry, academia, and government sectors, the series will cover critical infrastructure best practices, lessons learned, and introduce valuable preparedness resources and tools to mitigate risk and enhance resilience.

Participants can expect to gain invaluable insights and practical knowledge from each session, with the flexibility to attend individual courses or the entire series.
