About this event


ILO is designed to provide critical knowledge and skills in early recognition and awareness tied to the prevention of terrorism and other threats. It contains key content aimed at enabling the detection of pre-incident indicators and enhancing suspicious activity reporting. ILO is a foundational program within InfraGard going back almost a decade, showing completion of substantial training tied to defeating the threats we all face.

The content of ILO has been recently synchronized to mirror what is taught in TREW (Terrorism Recognition for Early Warning) and TRAPP (Terrorism Recognition, Awareness and Prevention Partnership), and critical infrastructure protection program modules. It has also been modified to include addressing other major threats that impact both the private and public sectors, such as understanding elements of civil unrest, natural disasters and epidemics/pandemics in a comparative risk assessment process.
