All sectors of trucking will be engaged during the event.  Additional aims of the exercise are to familiarize industry partners with TSA’s Principles of Risk-Based Security Strategy, FBI’s InfraGard Infrastructure Liaison Officer (ILO) program, and transportation trucking technologies to counter and/or mitigate risk.  Participants will include trucking industry professionals, law enforcement, state/local agencies engaged in transportation security, and Federal representatives from TSA, DHS, DOT, FBI, and others.
