Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) design the frameworks to improve security and enhance recovery mechanism.
Many pipelines across the world carry volatile and flammable materials that can have serious implications on public and environment safety. They are also the potential targets because of the type of products transported through them and also because of the widespread distribution of the pipeline networks. These pipelines face the threat of attacks, both physically and virtually resulting in disruption or release of its contents.
