Homeland security threat analysis

Part 2

Free societies are at risk for terrorist acts for several reasons: a) loose control of public information; b) weapons, communications equipment, and explosives are easy to obtain; c) the ease of creating and operating functional networks and financial systems in free societies. Consider the following factors when analyzing threats:

Existence: a group/individual’s presence to access a specific locale

Capability: an acquired, assessed, or demonstrated ability to conduct an attack

Motive: intent, objective to conduct an activity

History: previous background of activity

Targeting: preparation of/for specific violent acts against individuals or populations

Select one of the three examples you discussed in your previous case study NTAS. Identify and discuss factors used in target selection. Provide ways in which the United States can mitigate such future attacks on the homeland. Include a background/overview (i.e., lone shooter or cyberattack), current mitigation methodologies, future solutions you think would be successful deterrents or strategies. Defend your views.
