Defining Security? Make It Inclusive

When you’re setting out to protect a site, make all the ramifications of security specific and explicit.  That’s a reminder prompted by a big-picture item  on Secrecy News – “Homeland Security Has Too Many Definitions, Says CRS,” the Congressional Research Service.

“Ten years after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the U.S. government does not have a single definition for ‘homeland security,’ (instead) different strategic documents and mission statements offer varying missions that are derived from different homeland security definitions.”

Applied to security plans devised on a smaller scale than the nation, like your own facility, insure that you’re covering perimeter, IT, personnel and whatever other aspects of security are pertinent to your, yes, security.
