Senstar discusses Critical Infrastructure Protection and CFATS legislation with US Congressional Representatives
Herndon, Virginia – May 2012 – Senstar’s Ken Ribler, Executive Director of Government Relations, participated in Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) CONNECT’s 5th Annual Washington Fly-In, and met with 58 United States Congressional Offices. Participants met personally with several influential members of Congress including Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), Sen. Robert Portman (R-OH), Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) and Rep. Gene Green (D-TX).
Ken Ribler, had this to say about the event: “SOCMA is a strong partner and supporter of the CFATS (Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards) legislation that serves to enhance security protection for the chemical industry across the country. Close coordination and exchange of information between industry leaders like Senstar and Government legislators and staff is vital in order to facilitate implementation of the CFATS guidelines and standards.”
SOCMA’s Washington Fly-In gives chemical industry representatives the opportunity to directly advocate with members of Congress on issues affecting their businesses and the chemical manufacturing industry. Senstar’s presence was significant as it is the world’s largest perimeter intrusion detection systems company, and a leader in CFATS.
