This information bulletin is from the Department of Homeland Security's Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP). "In April 2004, Secretary Tom Ridge announced the development of an Interagency Security Plan that would identify and prioritize specific policies and strategies to increase vigilance, reduce vulnerabilities, and enhance response capabilities on a national scale. This plan focuses on a season rich with symbolic opportunities from spring 2004 to January 2005 that could prove to be attractive targets for terrorists. An interagency working group, comprised of federal, state, local and private sector stakeholders, focused its efforts on identifying and prioritizing sustainable policies, strategies, programs and technological solutions that will enhance the nation's security posture. The Interagency Security Plan consists of a wide and comprehensive spectrum of security initiatives that support short-term needs as well as provide permanent protective measures resulting in a strengthened baseline of preparedness and security. The plan focuses on five critical mission areas: prevention, protection, preparedness, response and recovery, and special events."
