The ITS/CVO Security Awareness course is a 1-day course that provides techniques for identifying and ranking vulnerability in the CVO Transportation System (CVO TS); techniques for developing countermeasures - both procedural and technical - for mitigating
vulnerability; and strategies for implementation and maintenance of these countermeasures.
The following key points are covered in this course:
Vulnerable Assets and Security Priorities in Commercial Vehicle Operations
Planning for Deployment
Next Steps/Applying Steps to Implement ITS/CVO Security Initiatives
The purpose of this course is not to make participants experts, but to provide them with the basic tools and resources needed for ITS/CVO Security Awareness, and direction on where to go for more information.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Name vulnerabilities and security priorities in commercial vehicle operations
- State procedural and technology countermeasures available to address vulnerabilities
- List the key phases in deploying ITS/CVO security solutions.
- Formulate next steps and potential opportunities to coordinate efforts in the deployment of potential ITS/CVO security initiatives
The stakeholders include but are not limited to: Federal agency personnel representing the Departments of Transportation and Homeland Security at the national headquarters and state/division; State agency personnel representing motor carrier enforcement,
