Scientists with little or no background in security and security professionals with little or no background in science and technology often have difficulty communicating in order to implement the best counterterrorism strategies. The Science and Technology of Counter terrorism offers the necessary theoretical foundation to address real-world terrorism scenarios, effectively bridging the gap. It provides a powerful security assessment methodology, coupled with counter terrorism strategies that are applicable to all terrorism attack vectors. These include biological, chemical, radiological, electromagnetic, explosive, and electronic or cyber attacks. In addition to rigorous estimates of threat vulnerabilities and the effectiveness of risk mitigation, it provides meaningful terrorism risk metrics. The Science and Technology of Counter terrorism teaches the reader how to think about terrorism risk, and evaluates terrorism scenarios and counter terrorism technologies with sophistication punctuated by humor. Both students and security professionals will significantly benefit from the risk assessment methodologies and guidance on appropriate counter terrorism measures contained within this book. It offers a simple but effective analytic framework to assess counter terrorism risk and realistic measures to address threats. It provides the essential scientific principles and tools required for this analysis. It explores the increasingly important relationship between physical and electronic risk in meaningful technical detail. It evaluates technical security systems to illustrate specific risks using concrete examples.
