Missouri - Kansas Locksmith Association,

I would like to personally thank you for the opportunity to provide a DHS briefing yesterday.  There is no doubt that the role of Security has expanded and changed in recent years and I hope you feel our discussions were valuable.  Your hospitality were not only appreciated but are true signs of encouragement to us at DHS as we strive to work in close partnership with the private sector to reach new levels of security awareness.  For your review, attached and links below provide additional information regarding the topics I discussed:

1. DHS - Protective Security Advisor (PSA) 

2. DHS - Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN)

3. DHS - Daily Open Source Infrastructure Report

4. DHS - United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT)

5. DHS - Active Shooter Documents

7. DHS - Bomb-Making Materials Awareness Program (BMAP)

8. DHS - Lodging/Hotel Documents
