Joe Zacarria, CFDC, Principal in the Enterprise Security Risk Group (eSRG) of ADT|ASG, will be a featured speaker at the “Farm to Fork” Securing the Supply Chain Forum in Walla Walla, Washington on October 26, 2018.

According to the Forum, Joe is “driving the innovation and optimization of Security Risk Management Services (SRMS).” SRMS is an industry category describing end-to-end risk, resilience and security services based on Enterprise Security Risk Management principles and best practices.

At the forum, Joe will be addressing the vulnerability of the food supply chain. He will be discussing the overall preparedness, response and recovery capability needed in the food industry. This is not only critical to the viability of the companies in the supply chain but also to the health of our state and nation. Walla Walla is known for its wine industry and Joe will be spending some time addressing the unique needs of this community in addition to his broader subject matter.

This will include an overview of how risk assessments and strategic security plans reduce vulnerabilities. Food safety is a specialized field. Joe has a CFDC certification, which translates into Certified Food Defense Coordinator.

As well, Joe is a Senior Fellow with the Center of Excellence for Homeland Security Emergency Management representing 34 community and technical colleges, public agencies and private sector organizations.
