Active public- private sector cooperation and coordination through the use of emergency management cycle, starting with planning, is one of the best exercise recommendation common to the Standard of the Emergency Management Accreditation Program and the National Incident Management System. For the private sector, it is common to the Business Continuity Programs and the National Fire Prevention Association 1600 Standard for Disaster Management. DHS has operated together with the private sector to enhance the mutual benefits and to ensure implementation of NFPA 1600. DHS is dedicated in developing and promoting a program on preparedness for private sector institutions that chose to look for certification voluntarily. The Federal Government inspires extensive multidirectional and two-way sharing between the public and the private sector of situational awareness and operational information relative to actual or potential incidents.
Political empowerment is the government working to help the community and promoting political participation on specific issues for the community population. (Zastrow & Krist-Ashman, 2010) Macro, mezzo, and micro are three categories that is viewed through social work. These three categories may influence and coincide with each other. The practice of macro systems is the effort to help clients by intervening in a larger system, such as the neighborhood, at a smaller group level, or institution. (Zastrow & Krist-Ashman, 2010) Macro systems empowers clients by involving them in systematic change.
Counterterrorism is the department that mainly focuses on preventing terrorism, preventing the use, possession, or transport of harmful chemicals, and enhancing the security in the United States. Activities included in counterterrorism include: aviation & security, chemical security, fraud & counterfeit, information sharing, infrastructure, law enforcement, and secure identification. Another department of the DHS is border security. Border Security secures and manages our borders by securing all points of entry via air, land, and sea. It also protects the trade and travel of all things leaving and coming into the U.S. Border security is also in charge of breaching international criminal and terrorist organizations.
The Border and Transportation Security implements the efficient people goods and services. Prevents drug cartels as well as terrorists from coming into our country. Since Homeland Security was established a lot of developments have taken place. It continues to develop. These efforts have provided a strong foundation to protect communities from terrorism and
In practice, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has relied heavily on “known shipper” protocols to prevent shipments of cargo from unknown sources on passenger aircraft. ATSA also mandated that a security plan for all-cargo operations was to be put in place as soon as possible, but aviation security initiatives in the
This “random selecting” is when they choose one passenger from each flight and take you to the side for more security measurers. There are three ways to become a "human element”. The first is determined on how a passenger looks, and how security feels about a person’s look. The second and third ways are much fairer ways of determination. The pat down, another one of the ways of selecting, is when they take a traveler to the side after they have gone through the metal detector, and pat the traveler down with their hands to make sure they had not hidden anything that the metal detector did not catch or even the full body scanner.
In an airport there are many unspoken rules. Since there are many dangers that go along with flying such as hijacking a plane, a bomb on the plane, or something that will effect the customers flying on the plane. These topics should not be brought up in an airport. If the air port security hears a person talking about a type of weapon or a danger to the flight the security has rights to question and possibly not allow you to enter onto the plane. Think of the nightmare that would cause to be questioned as a terrorist and feel like a criminal just for bringing up a simple subject of speech.
They have been working to detect, prevent, and mitigate cyber threats and vulnerabilities. There are multiple vulnerabilities which adversely affect information technology but this paper will focus on the human factor. Information security is vital and employees are the key to protecting an organization’s information. Most organizations appreciate their employees and consider them a valuable asset. Employees can be responsible for the success and/or failure of an organization.
An organization can deter costly government regulations by being socially ethical and responsible “The concept of social responsibility proposes that a private corporation has responsibilities to society that extend beyond making a profit.”(Wheelen, T. L., & Hunger, J. D. (2010). The organization should consider the communities needs before a strategic plan is developed and should determine the best course to meet the communities and stakeholders expectations. “Social responsibility, therefore, includes both ethical and discretionary, but not economic and legal, responsibilities.”(Wheelen & Hunger (2010)).An organization by being in good standing in the community where the business operates tends to develop a loyal customer base. A loyal customer base trends to adding value to the organization which meets stakeholder’s expectations “A firm can fulfill its ethical responsibilities by taking actions that society tends to value but has not yet put into law.” (Wheelen & Hunger (2010)).The organization can keep government regulations down by becoming socially active or responsible. An example would be Coca- Cola adopting a concept of only allowing diet drinks to be sold to high school students and water to be sold to middle and elementary students.
These personnel may not be loyal to the company they protect but the company they work for (Ortmeier, 2009). All security organizations should have a goal to achieve a land mark by which success and failure are measured. This will assist in the development or refinement of protocols. By having a well-trained and professional security force an organization can focus on the task of their primary mission and have confidence that whatever they are having protected is indeed protected. Knowing how the law works and what is legal or illegal in a current theatre of operations is key for a security organization.
