Tutor description

Identify a critical asset in your city or state that may be vulnerable to domestic terrorism. Use University of Phoenix Material: Appendix A to identify five threats against your critical asset. Consider both terrorist and non-terrorist threats and include at least one weapon of mass destruction. Calculate the risk for each threat and identify existing countermeasures. Write a 1,400- to 2,100-word proposal that assesses the current vulnerability of the critical asset. Consider the threats identified, the calculated risk, and existing countermeasures. Determine if the vulnerability is reasonable and offer additional countermeasures to mitigate the risk of attack. Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines, and include the University of Phoenix Material: Appendix A as an appendix.
