Security Resources DHS Hosting Supply Chain Security Workshops

In an effort to increase resiliency and keep risk management efforts focused on supply chain security, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has developed a series of supply chain security workshops sponsored by the Critical Manufacturing Sector. Presentations will include information on best practices in global supply chain security, supply chain resilience through optimization, and the recently released White House Executive Order: Streamlining the Export/Import Process for America's Businesses.

DHS says that the workshops are ideal for supply chain professionals or those interested in providing input to DHS on improving the supply chain management process through enhanced trade facilitation. The first workshop will take place this Wednesday, April 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Houston. Additional workshops will be held on Thursday, May 1, in Seattle, Thursday, May 15, in Philadelphia, Thursday, May 29, in Chicago, and Tuesday, June 3, in Los Angeles/Long Beach. The workshops are free to attend, but are limited in space and are on a first come first served basis. Please send questions or comments to
