DHS Knowledge Center has 411 on CFATS

Aug. 11, 2010
If you haven't checked it out yet, you should go to the new CFATS Knowledge Center. Although it has been on the Web since the beginning of July it was just announced at the Chemical Sector Security Summit and it is live on the DHS site. It has a number of excellent features including articles, FAQs and the latest news.
If you haven't checked it out yet, you should go to the new CFATS Knowledge Center. Although it has been on the Web since the beginning of July it was just announced at the Chemical Sector Security Summit and it is live on the DHS site. It has a number of excellent features including articles, FAQs and the latest news. It also has a great user interface with buttons for info on registration, Top Screens, SVAs, SSPs, etc. The bottom half of the Center's Homepage is devoted to documents, help and downloads.DHS said that The Center brings together information and resources that before were located on multiple pages. It also allows for full-text search which helps users to find information more quickly. You can access information in multiple ways - either by type (for example -- all FAQs) or by topic (for example - Site Security Plan).

I like the new format. It is clean and easy to navigate. I also believe the search feature is an excellent add. It can really help to track down everything you need to know. It is clear DHS is trying to get more information to everyone in the best way it can. If you have been looking around, you know that there is not a whole of information out there on CFATS and DHS recognizes that it needs to help everyone navigate what is definitely new territory.
