Since 2003, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel (HSSP)1 has worked to accelerate the development of voluntary standards for homeland security and emergency preparedness in support of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate.

As part of that continuing effort, the HSSP convened the workshop: Resiliency Metrics: Standards, Test Labs and Methods, and Measuring Tools, on August 22, 2012, in New Orleans, LA. This interactive workshop provided an opportunity for all participants government, standards developers, program developers, and small businesses to engage in an open dialogue regarding resiliency standards.
