BioWatch PCR assays : building confidence, ensuring reliability / Committee on PCR Standards for the BioWatch Program, Board on Life Sciences, Division on Earth and Life Studies, Board on Health Sciences Policy, Institute of Medicine and National Research Council of the National Academies by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
"BioWatch is an air monitoring system deployed in jurisdictions around the country with the goal of detecting the presence of certain high risk pathogenic microorganisms. It relies on a network of federal and nonfederal collaborative relationships to be successful, and is one part of a larger array of disease surveillance, intelligence-gathering, and biomonitoring activities in support of public safety and health. The assays used in the BioWatch system to detect the presence of pathogens in collected samples rely on the technique of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to sensitively and specifically amplify target nucleic acid sequences. BioWatch PCR Assays evaluates and provides guidance on appropriate standards for the validation and verification of PCR tests and assays in order to ensure that adequate performance data are available to public health and other key decision makers with a sufficient confidence level to facilitate the public health response to a BioWatch Actionable Response. This report discusses principles of performance standards, reviews information from several existing guidance documents and standards that might be applicable to BioWatch, and discusses assay testing efforts that have occurred or are ongoing. BioWatch PCR Assays provides recommendations on general principles and approaches for a performance standard and validation framework to meet BioWatch's mission. The report also considers how developments in technology, particularly in multiplex PCR and next-generation sequencing, can contribute to the ability of the BioWatch program to meet current and future challenges. This report has been determined to contain information exempt from disclosure under 5 U.S.C. 552(b). Section 15 of the Federal Advisory Committee Act provides that the National Academies shall make its final report available to the public unless the National Academies determines that the report would disclose matters described in one or more of the exemption provisions under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In such case, the National Academies "shall make public an abbreviated version of the report that does not disclose those matters." This unrestricted, abbreviated version of the report represents, in so far as possible, the committee's findings, recommendations, and other substantive material without disclosing materials described in 5 U.S.C. 552(b)"--Publisher's description

National infrastructure protection plan : partnering to enhance protection and resiliency by United States( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The overarching goal of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (nipp) is to build a safer, more secure, and more resilient America by preventing, deterring, neutralizing, or mitigating the effects of deliberate efforts by terrorists to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit elements of our Nation's critical infrastructure and key resources (cikr) and to strengthen national preparedness, timely response, and rapid recovery of cikr in the event of an attack, natural disaster, or other emergency. In seven chapters, this publication describes the purpose, goals, scope, and applicability of the nipp. Following an introduction, Chapter 2, "Authorities, Roles, and Responsibilities," includes a brief overview of the relevant authorities and outlines the principal roles and responsibilities of: dhs; SSAs and GCCs; nipp partners at all levels of government and in the private sector; cikr owners and operators; and other partners who share responsibility in protecting the Nation's cikr. Chapter 3, "The Strategy: Managing Risk," addresses the use of the nipp risk management framework as part of the overall effort to ensure the protection and resiliency of our Nation's cikr. Dhs, the SSAs, and their public and private sector partners share responsibility for implementation of the nipp risk management framework. Chapter 4, "Organizing and Partnering for cikr Protection," states that to be effective, the nipp must be implemented using organizational structures and partnerships committed to sharing and protecting the information needed to achieve the nipp goal and supporting objectives described in chapter 1. dhs, in close collaboration with the SSAs, is responsible for overall coordination of the nipp partnership organization and information-sharing network. Chapter 5, "cikr Protection as Part of the Homeland Security Mission," describes the linkages between the nipp, the SSPs, and other cikr protection strategies, plans, and initiatives that are most relevant to the overarching national homeland security and cikr protection missions. It also describes how the unified national cikr protection effort integrates elements of the homeland security mission, including preparedness and activities to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. Sector-specific linkages to these other national frameworks are addressed in the SSPs. Chapter 6, "Ensuring an Effective, Efficient Program Over the Long Term," addresses the efforts needed to ensure an effective, efficient cikr protection program over the long term. It focuses particularly on the long-lead-time elements that require sustained plans and investments over time, such as generating skilled human capital, developing high-tech systems, and building public awareness. Chapter 7, "Providing Resources for the cikr Protection Program," describes an integrated, risk-informed approach to: guide resource support for the national cikr protection program; focus Federal grant assistance to State, local, tribal, and territorial entities; and complement relevant private sector activities. Appended are: (1) Special Considerations: Cross-Sector Cybersecurity and International cikr Protection; (2) Summary of Relevant Statutes, Strategies, and Directives; (3) The Protection Program: nipp Core Criteria for Risk Assessments; Existing cikr Protection Programs and Initiatives; and Infrastructure Data Warehouse; (4) Existing Coordination Mechanisms; (5) Integrating cikr Protection as Part of the Homeland Security Mission: State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Government Considerations; and Recommended Homeland Security Practices for Use by the Private Sector; and (6) s&t Plans, Programs, and Research & Development.
