"This document serves as a companion to the earlier PCAST [President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology] report on how science and technology capabilities might best be structured to contribute to the newly formed Department of Homeland Security. This report documents the work of the PCAST during 2002 and 2003 in the area of combating terrorism. [...] Our recommendations focus on protecting citizen health through the creation of a comprehensive national readiness strategy, helping first responders, helping businesses protect our nation and improving the technology of personal identification. We also offer suggestions on cyberterrorism, and other matters involving threat detection, assessment and response."
