  • The impact of instability in latin and South America

    This article uses a system dynamics methodology to examine the geopolitical significance of narcoterrorism dynamics currently observed in Colombia and the Andean Ridge region. Through influence diagrams, it presents a systemic analysis of the phenomenon. It argues that the interaction between drug production, insurgency is a system characterized by dynamic instability. Moreover, it suggests that the extensive quantity of positive feedback relations in this system could allow the current violence and social chaos could spread across the region and overwhelm the capability of governments to respond, more rapidly than a traditional analysis of narcoterrorism and other regional phenomenon suggests.

  • Utilization of high-power microwave sources in electronic sabotage and terrorism

    High-power microwave (HPM) sources have been under investigation for several years as potential weapons for a variety of sabotage, terrorism, counter- security system, and combat applications. The key points to recognize are the insidious nature of HPM and the many areas in which it can impact on security technology. Computers and other equipment can be damaged without user recognition of the cause. HPM has the capability to penetrate not only radio front-ends but also the most minute shielding penetrations throughout the equipment. The potential exists for significant damage to security and other devices and circuits, and even injury to humans. Different HPM threats are described and specific protective measures are outlined.<<ETX>>

  • Terrorism, Threat and Time: The Mediating Effect of Terrorist Threat on Public Willingness to Forego Civil Liberties

    Public trust in government efforts to combat terrorism is of central importance to policy makers and terrorists alike. Undermining the public's confidence in its government is a central aim of any strategy of terrorism, while public support is critical to securing funding for, and acceptance of, counter-terrorism measures. This article uses two national surveys of Australians, carried out over the last four years, to study the role of public confidence in government through the willingness of citizens to allow the police to search, without a court order, the homes of suspected terrorists, the impact of perceived personal threat, and the probability of future terrorist attacks on Australia. The results indicate that there is a strong relationship between public fear of terrorism, and the willingness of the public to allow the erosion of civil liberties for increased security, leading to the conclusion that the greater the perceived personal threat of terrorism the public has, the more likely the public is to accept infringements of civil liberties, which could undermine the existing arrangements of liberal democracy and potentially play into terrorist aims, while the perceived probability of a future terrorist attack on domestic soil acts as a significant mediating factor, which decreases during periods with no high- visibility terrorist attacks.

  • Quality of life impact of public policies for energy and telecommunications

    The objective of this preliminary investigation is to identify actual current public policy options for managing these two interdependent infrastructures to explore possible impacts on measures of quality of life. Causal relationships are investigated between public policies and quality of life related to two critical infrastructures energy and telecommunications. Specific components of these infrastructures are selected to narrow the scope of the investigation. Within the broad area of energy, the focus is the electric power industry. The telephone and Internet communications subsystems are the focus within the telecommunications infrastructure. For the purposes of this work, these two subsystems are referred to as the telecommunications infrastructure, even though a more encompassing definition would typically include broadcast television and radio, enterprise networks, amateur radio systems, and a variety of other voice and data exchange systems.

  • Assessing the impact of airspace security measures during the 2008 united nations general assembly meeting

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plays a pivotal role in maintaining security within the National Airspace System (NAS). This paper discusses employment of temporary flight restrictions and other air domain security measures during the September 2008 United Nations General Assembly meeting. Also discussed are some of the airspace security incidents that occurred during the event, identified as Tracks of Interest, and some of the impacts that the airspace security measures had on the NAS and its users. A comparison is made with impacts measured during the 2007 United Nations General Assembly meeting.

  • Simulation and impact analysis of denial-of-service attacks on power SCADA

    With ever growing threat of cyber terrorism, vulnerability of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems is the most common subject for most security researchers now. Attacks on SCADA systems are increasing and its impact needs to be studied to implement proper counter measures. Many of the SCADA systems are relatively insecure with chronic and pervasive vulnerabilities. This paper explains possible vulnerabilities present in SCADA systems and also present the impact analysis of Denial of Service (DoS) by modeling attack using influence diagram. Simulation of DoS attacks will help in analyzing and accessing the security of SCADA system and also used to analyze the impact. Experiments have been conducted on RTU by targeting “availability” of the system, results have been analyzed and impact has been studied.

  • Perspectives on Global Supply Chain Supply-Side Risk Management

    Recent geo-political events, such as terrorism and political instability, and geological and climatologic disasters, have underscored the potential risks to global supply chains and their catastrophic financial impact on global companies. Disruptions can occur anywhere along the supply chain-at the inbound or supplier side, during the internal processes inside the company's facilities, or at the outbound or customer-facing side. This paper focuses on risks to the inbound/supplier side part of the supply chain, in which parts or services move from the supplier to the manufacturer or retailer. The paper begins with a discussion of the reasons for increasing supply chain vulnerability, and then describes major threats to supply chains. Section IV discusses the way Supply Chain Risk Management is used to identify threats, assess them, and determine what actions should be taken to manage them. The paper then explains how the outcome of risk assessments can guide firms to handle risks, through forecasting, appropriate use of single or multiple suppliers, risk sharing, information sharing and collaboration with suppliers, flexible supplier relationships, and security prevention measures. The paper concludes with a discussion of research needs in the supply chain risk area

  • Disclosure strategies for critical infrastructure against terror attacks

    This paper analyzes the government's disclosure strategies for critical infrastructure against potential terror attacks. Any event that disrupts the functioning of critical infrastructure such as power plants, airports, and water management systems will have a major impact on the society. As such, it is very important for the government to protect such infrastructure from threats by establishing proper disclosure strategies. The government usually finds it difficult to accurately assess the terror risk because the government does not have sufficient information about the terrorists' capabilities and motives. Therefore, implementation of an anti-terrorism policy depends on the government's subjective decision. Considering this, the paper formulates the game between the government and the terrorists as a subjective game. It is found that the government's disclosure of the implementation of counter- terrorism measures increases the government's subjective utility, but does not necessarily lead to an increment in the government's objective utility.

  • Assessing the impact of airspace security measures during several 2009 events

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plays a pivotal role in maintaining security within the National Airspace System (NAS). In particular, high profile events require special airspace security measures to ensure the safety and security of the participants and the venues hosting these events. These events are often designated as National Security Special Events (NSSEs). This paper discusses Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) and other air domain security measures typically employed during NSSEs. Examined are two 2009 NSSEs: the January Presidential Inauguration and the September United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting. Also examined are some of the airspace security incidents that occurred during these events, identified as Tracks of Interest (TOIs). A comparison is also made with incidents measured during several previous NSSEs: the 2007 and 2008 UNGA meetings and the Democratic and Republican National Conventions held during 2008.

  • Analysis of faults impact on gas and electricity systems

    Energy supply process from energy producers to energy consumers consists of several stages, where each stage is very important because the whole process provides main exercise and goal - secure and reliable energy supply for the consumers. In last years, increasing the damages in the power systems not only from the technical point of view but from physical intervention as well, including external hazardous - terroristic attack, the actual question is critical energy infrastructure protection and evaluation of risks of critical infrastructure damages and outages. European Commission identified goals and guidelines for definitions of critical elements of power system infrastructure and provided measures for such infrastructure protection. In whole Europe energy supply companies start to include in development plants also the probability of critical infrastructure outages, to forecast risks not only for internal faults, but for external outages as well, and start plan measures of power system restoration, taking into account external interventions to the power system. Both electricity and gas sectors in the energy field in many countries in Europe are strongly interdependent because the part of the electrical energy is produced by CHPs, operated by gas. Security of energy supply, risks, and synergy of different types of infrastructure are analyzed also in Baltic countries and Latvia as well. The methodology of energy infrastructure faults impact evaluation, based on the network topology, generation specification and hazards probability in Latvia is proposed in the paper and could be implemented in future in the energy sector.
