"The CFATS regulations provide Risk-Based Performance Standards to reduce vulnerability and manage risk around chemical facilities but they do not prescribe methodologies," said Mr. Romanowich.

I am excited to be moderating this distinguished panel of experts."

He has held management positions in video technologies with Intel, IBM and the Sarnoff Corporation, and co-founded Pyramid Vision Technologies, a pioneer in intelligent video surveillance acquired by L3 Communications.
