OSAC Hosts First-ever Joint Industry Security Seminar

OSAC held its first-ever Joint Industry Security Seminar on February 27, 2019 for the Aviation Security Working Group (ASWG) and Energy Security Working Group (ESWG) at Rice University’s Baker Institute.

The meeting featured speakers from both industries, OSAC staff and other government representatives including the Deputy Director of the National Counterterrorism Center. Nearly 100 members of the ASWG and ESWG attended. The day prior, the ASWG held its first quarterly meeting at the United Airlines facility in Houston. Following the Seminar, OSAC attended an industry-classified security briefing for the private sector hosted by the Department of Homeland Security.
