In an effort to provide resources that are focused on safety, security, and preparedness, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released the CISA Houses of Worship Security Self-Assessment Tool.  This new resource provides the faith-based community with an easy to use assessment tool that produces a formatted report with resources which can be used to identify and address your facility’s security concerns.

This tool along with other faith-based resources are located on the Faith Based Organization-Houses of Worship (FBO-HOW) resource page. This webpage provides a single point of entry to CISA guidance and resources designed to inform your security-based decisions.  This continually updated page includes assessments, trainings, planning, exercises, and other materials focused on the mitigation of a wide range of manmade threats (e.g., bombing, active shooter, vehicle ramming).
