MetadataShow full item record
December 2011. The articles published in December 2011 look at the future of homeland security and suggest a new method for assessing past effectiveness. Rapid advances in technology have created a highly disruptive environment for homeland security, empowering small groups or individuals in new and unpredictable ways. Responding to the power of these “few,” argues Rodrigo Nieto-Gómez, requires new organizational approaches. One such approach may be to divide the homeland security enterprise into two distinct missions: the current systemic mission and a separate, disruptive (future shock) mission modeled on the efforts of DARPA. Yee San Su uses network analysis to develop techniques for assessing effective coordination in response to large-scale disasters. He proposes two techniques for characterizing this coordination, both of which were successfully implemented in a case-study analysis of the Top Officials 4 exercise.
