Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Services for Places of Worship
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is committed to supporting efforts to maintain safe and secure houses of worship and related facilities while sustaining an open and welcoming environment.
CISA recently launched a new webpage to provide access to information that supports efforts to secure houses of worship. CISA’s new Faith-Based Organization-Houses of Worship (FBO-HOW) aims to provide a one stop shop for guidance and resources that will inform security-based decisions.
In addition, and as a reminder, CISA maintains a nationwide presence through regional offices that consist of personnel, including Protective Security Advisors (PSAs), who can assist in enhancing security at houses of worship and related facilities through assessments, exercises, training, and other tangible capabilities. To find out more about CISA’s resources, visit their newly released CISA Services Catalog or reach out to CISA Central with any questions.
Your continued partnership and dedication to maintain your houses of worship safe and secure will help lower targeted violence against faith-based communities. Please always remember together, we can enhance our collective capabilities and develop innovative solutions to mitigate the dynamic threat environment.
