The Academic Side of Security

Thinking of sending some of your people for academic training in security disciplines? Here’s some guidance –

Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff provides a list of “the eight most important things” to include in an academic homeland security program:

• Management skills, and in particular the acquisition process

• Intelligence

• Risk management concepts and application

• Emergency management – with a huge emphasis on planning

• Legal issues – a basic understanding of applicable laws and constitutional authorities

• International relations

• Cyber and technological issues

• Social psychology – a focus on interagency relationship building and how to get the variety of players involved to cooperate.

Look’s like a full plate for anyone.
