Alion to Offer RAMCAP™ Risk Analysis Training

Technology Solutions Provider Will Train Security Professionals to Use

McLean, Va., Jan. 29, 2008 – Alion Science and Technology,  a global technology solutions provider, today announced it will present five training courses in 2008 on the Department of Homeland Security’s Risk Analysis and Management for Critical Asset Protection (RAMCAP™) methodology.

RAMCAP is a framework for analyzing and managing the risks associated with natural disasters or terrorist attacks on critical infrastructure, such as chemical refineries and power plants.  Developed by ASME-ITI, a provider of engineering and technology services, under contract with Department of Homeland Security (DHS), RAMCAP includes a standardized methodology to carry out vulnerability analysis, threat assessment, risk management, and other steps to safeguard facilities, systems, and personnel.

The 3-day courses, to be held once a month from February to June, deliver the only “how to” instruction available to provide security and risk management professionals with the knowledge and skills to implement RAMCAP, which can help users meet the industry compliance requirements of DHS.

Alion, which has developed automated tools for applying the RAMCAP methodology, will provide live education by Jay Robinson, an Alion security and defense analyst who is one of the few RAMCAP certified trainers in the country.  Each course will prepare participants to take the RAMCAP certification exam.

The first course is scheduled for February 11-13 at Alion Science and Technology’s office in Washington, D.C.  Future training dates are March 10-12, April 14-16, May 5-7, and June 9-11.  For registration, locations and further information, contact Virginia Murphey at Alion at (703) 998-1670 or
