2017 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education



The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and The University of Utah are hosting the 2017 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education (NTTX) on Oct. 10-11, 2017 at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. Higher education leaders are invited to register to participate alongside federal, state and local representatives from departments and agencies that support campus resilience. This event will include workshop sessions, a tabletop exercise, and an after-action review session on preparing participants to respond to a campus emergency. The event will focus on a failure in campus infrastructure caused by a cyber-attack.

Because emergency planning involves a team of individuals from across an institution, DHS recommends a team of up to five senior leaders representing various functions (information technology, security, leadership, public safety, student life, and communications) attend from each institution. The event is free. Participants and presenters are responsible for their own travel, lodging and expenses. Attendees will be confirmed by DHS on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration given to institutions demonstrating a strong commitment to sending diverse teams of 3-5 senior leaders.
