The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced the updated Fire as a Weapon Action Guide to better understand the threats of fire as a weapon and help mitigate future attacks. In this action guide, CISA compiled notable events within the past year to capture the increased incidents of arson and incendiary improvised devices used as a weapon.
The updated action guide promotes vigilance for our industry partners and empowers security professionals to observe and evaluate potential indicators, mitigate potential risk, and obtain help when necessary.
CISA provides access to a multitude of resources in support of security planning; these resources assist in decision-making to implement cost-effective security measures to protect people and property.
The product will be available on the CISA Soft Targets Crowded Places, Active Assailant Security Resources at cisa.gov/securing-public-gatherings.
