"Beginning in mid-September 2016, a group of industry, government, academic, international, and public officials gathered at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Headquarters to devise a strategy to share information, prevent attacks, and protect infrastructure from emerging threats to public spaces of transportation venues. This Public Area Security Summit, co-hosted by TSA and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Infrastructure Protection, was the first in a series of meetings with the objective of creating an enhanced security environment in the public area through collaborative engagement with all stakeholders. Together, the group sought to leverage an entire network of transportation and security officials to devise a framework that could deter nefarious actors and, failing to deter, create a system that quickly and effectively responds to attacks in the public area to minimize loss of life and disruption of transportation."
