Infrastructure Protection Security Briefing

Register to Receive O.U.P.S.’s IPSB


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) understands the importance of our nation's infrastructure. They have identified 16 sectors of "critical infrastructure" and "key resources" (CIKR) that comprise our nation's most important resources. Our industry - utilities, municipalities, and professional excavators - are the owners and/or caretakers of many of these sectors. Ohio is key in terms of CIKR. We are one of the most prosperous states in resources and facilities, so it is important that we keep these safe.


O.U.P.S.’s Community Affairs Department’s Security Briefing is designed to inform readers of infrastructure protection issues shared by DHS, Ohio Homeland Security, FBI, Great Lakes Hazards Coalition, among others that are of interest to Ohioans working in the utility, municipality, and excavation fields. We will update our readers with current information in a short, easy to read report.


We will update our readers on various topics ranging from upcoming training, webinars, and exercises to cyber security concerns and recent metal theft cases in Ohio. If you are interested in receiving the Infrastructure Protection Security Briefing simply email Ohio Utilities Protection Service’s Community Affairs Department at and provide your full name, company/organization name, and email address.
