  Transportation Systems Sector-Specific Plan An Annex to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan      The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) are the Sector-Specific Agencies (SSAs) for the Transportation Systems Sector. TSA and the USCG, in collaboration with the Department of Transportation coordinate the preparedness activities among the sector’s partners to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from all hazards that could have a debilitating effect on homeland security, public health and safety, or economic well-being.This Transportation Systems Sector-Specific Plan (SSP) is the strategic plan for the sector fulfilling the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7: Critical Infrastructure Identification, Prioritization, and Protection, and the requirements of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (as amended) for the National Strategy for Transportation Security. The included modal annexes for mass transit and passenger rail, maritime, and freight railroads also consolidate strategic planning and infrastructure protection requirements. The Transportation Systems SSP describes collaboratively developed strategies to reduce risks to critical transportation infrastructure from the broad range of known and unknown terrorism threats. The SSP adopts and amplifies the National Infrastructure Protection Plan risk management framework by describing a process intended to encourage wider participation in risk-reduction decisionmaking activities. The main objective of the process is to build a set of programs and initiatives that reduce the sector’s most significant risks in an efficient, practical, and cost-effective manner. Examples of some of these pro-grams and initiatives include:Achieved first milestone for screening cargo on passenger aircraft;  Aligned transportation grant projects to reduce security risks in most vulnerable regions;  Expanded sector security training and exercise program across all modes;  Conducted 62 Area Maritime Security Plan exercises;  Tracked the output measures of risk mitigation activities; and  Developed key risk reduction programs such as Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response and Transportation Worker  Identification Credential.TSA, the USCG, and the sector partners will continue to work together to ensure continued progress toward the sector vision and goals through a broad set of risk mitigation activities (RMAs), such as those summarized above. Additional examples of how the SSAs collaborated with sector partners effectively to implement two major ongoing RMAs are:Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC): A security program designed to ensure that individuals who pose  a security threat do not gain unescorted access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime transportation system. The credential is a biometric card that ensures only vetted workers can enter without an escort to secure transportation areas. The TWIC Program is jointly administered by TSA and the USCG.      tion Systems Sector-Speci󿬁c Plan Intermodal Security Training and Exercise Program: A program that supports TSA’s Transportation Sector Network  Management Modal Security Managers and private sector partners with exercises and training. The program is designed to support all transportation security partners with security objectives and training that has clear and consistent performance measures.The sector will review the SSP annually to make necessary updates or amendments. The SSAs look forward to working with sector partners to implement the risk management framework and improve the protection and resilience of the sector.Each year, the Transportation Systems Sector Annual Report will provide updates on the sector’s efforts to identify, prioritize, and coordinate the protection of its critical infrastructure, as defined in the Transportation Systems SSP. The Sector Annual Report provides the current priorities of the sector as well as the progress made during the past year in following the plans and strategies set out in the Transportation Systems SSP. John P.
