Deploying Transportation Security Practices in State DOTs

In 2012, the AASHTO Special Committee on Transportation Security and Emergency Management (SCOTSEM) adopted NCHRP Report 525, Vol. 14: Security 101: A Physical Security Primer for Transportation Agencies. Since the publication of this report, there have been both significant changes and a substantial increase in knowledge about surface transportation security. In response to this changed landscape, NCHRP Project 20-59(51)A “Update of Security 101: A Physical Security Primer for Transportation Agencies” was initiated in September 2015 to update the NCHRP Report 525, Vol. 14 guidance and resource material. This new edition will include not only the latest state of the practice recommendations on physical security, cybersecurity, and infrastructure protection as defined in the Security 101 primer, but will also present the transportation security function in the broader contexts of system resilience and sustainability, systems management and operations (broadly defined). The updated Security 101 primer is scheduled to be published in 2018. The objective of this research is to develop and implement a comprehensive deployment and change management strategy assisting states that wish to more effectively evaluate and implement the revised security guidelines recommended in the updated Security 101 primer and related material developed in NCHRP Project 20-59(51)A.
