Within the Discussion Board area, write 600 words or more that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

The current risk formula (R = T x V x C) that is used by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has not always been the risk formula used.

Research prior methodologies (formulas) used by DHS to determine risk, and complete the following:

  • Based upon your research, explain why these methodologies (formulas) were deemed to be insufficient to adequately describe or model risk to any given facility or structure. Compare and contrast the current DHS risk formula to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)-developed risk and hazard analysis matrix.
  • Does the FEMA risk and hazard analysis matrix comply with the DHS risk formula? Are the two items compatible?
  • Consider your local community’s Critical Infrastructure (CI) facilities. Is the DHS risk formula or the FEMA risk and hazard matrix appropriate for your community?
  • Is there an alternative risk formula that better supports the CI needs of your community? If not, explain in detail. If so, explain in detail.


PART 2: CAN BE EXTENDED WITHOUT AN ISSUE


You are an Action Officer (AO) assigned to the county Homeland Security Office. The director has requested that you conduct a risk analysis of the county administrative building and courthouse. She is concerned that the existing analysis is outdated, did not conform to the current U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) risk analysis methodology, and did not employ the National Scenarios. The director has informed you of her intention to present your report to the county commission to seek additional funding to expand the Risk Analysis effort to other Critical Infrastructure (CI) facilities within the county and to broaden the county’s CI planning, response, and recovery capabilities.

  • Using the DHS risk management framework depicted in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) and the key points concerning critical infrastructure protection (CIP) learned thus far, create a simple matrix to facilitate a risk analysis and assessment of your county courthouse or another local government building in your municipality. This is only a notional analysis or assessment to familiarize you with the various factors potentially impacting a real and comprehensive CI risk analysis.
    • Note:Do not get frustrated with the unavailable, missing details or facts. Just use your imagination. Focus on the process instead of the missing data.
  • Using the matrix that is located in the additional Phase Resources and your analysis, conduct a notional risk analysis of your county courthouse or another government building in your locale.
    • Address the risk factors using the situations depicted by the 15 National Planning Scenarios.
    • If you feel there are other more likely scenarios that need mentioning, do so.
  • This is a formal report. The professionalism, detailed descriptions, and completeness of the report are essential to the director in gaining additional funding.
