Abstract
State and local jurisdiction are increasingly relying on risk-based management approaches to allocate resources for security and emergency planning. Recognizing the needs of these jurisdictions to identify and prepare for potential terrorism risks, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Preparedness Directorate (NPD), developed the Terrorism Risk Assessment and Management (TRAM) methodology to help local jurisdictions implement a robust continuous risk management capability. The TRAM compares the relative risk of acts of terrorism against critical assets owned or operated by organizations and identifies and prioritizes enhancements in security, emergency response, and recovery that could be implemented to reduce those risks.
