Since 9/11, the U.S. government and the private sector have devised sophisticated ways of protecting people and assets. The threats have evolved, however, becoming more insidious. They no longer comprise just terrorists who target critical infrastructures. They also include insider threats, such as PFC Manning and NSA contractor Snowden who leaked classified defense information, active shooter incidents like the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, and the 2013 Boston Marathon terrorist bombing. These events make it imperative for the public and private sectors to engage in effective partnership to protect people, facilities, and national infrastructure assets.

Homeland Security and Private Sector Business: Corporations' Role in Critical Infrastructure Protection, Second Edition identifies the role the private sector plays in securing our homeland and offers strategies to aid in the fight against national and international threats. Addressing mandates and legislation introduced since the first edition, this new edition includes:

  • Updates to the NIPP (National Infrastructure Protection Plan)
  • New case studies of both proper security policies and procedures in practice versus costly security breaches
  • Greater focus on smaller business and practical "immediate use" guidance
  • New measures for assessing and addressing vulnerabilities and threats
  • New appendices with sample plans and practical checklists

Supplying tools that can easily be adapted and applied to every business situation at all budget levels, the book helps businesses counter the total threat, from traditional terrorists to inside betrayers―providing a clear blueprint for securing people and assets.

About the Author:

Elsa Lee served as a U.S. Army counterintelligence officer and special agent for 20 years in the fight against terrorism and espionage in the United States, Europe, Central America, and Asia. She is now a lecturer and the CEO and founder of Advantage SCI, LLC, a professional services firm with offices in Washington, D.C.; Texas; and California. The company provides corporate, homeland, and national security services to government and private industry. Lee works with key member representatives of the critical national infrastructures, the academic community, and the U.S. government. She has been quoted extensively in national and international newspapers and professional journals and has appeared on Univision, Telemundo, CNN, Fox News, CBS News, Voice of America, and Canada Business Channel.

Review:

"Lee argues that while terrorism is one threat, there are many risks that require a thorough understanding of the causes and effects of 17 critical factors that threaten many key resources. From chemical warfare to cyber threats, workplace violence to narcotics trafficking, Lee emphasizes the need to constantly learn from every incident as past lessons are not easily learned. Real cases prove her points. This is a must read for those who care about national security."
―Senator Ted W. Lieu (D), State Senator of Senate District 28
