About the webinar
Every day, somewhere in the world, a school, church or hospital is attacked by a terrorist or insurgent group, usually one that has threaten the United States or its citizens abroad. The psychological vulnerabilities covered earlier are only part of the challenge related to protecting people from these types of heinous soft target attacks. There are also physical vulnerabilities that make soft targets more attractive to would-be attackers - some that can be mitigated, and others that cannot. Prior to discussing individual venues, we’ll start with a strategic view of the United States to assess vulnerability of certain regions and cities, and then explore the targets themselves.
