ABSTRACT

Smarter Security [webcast]   [open pdf - 71KB]

This "Smarter Security" lecture module was created as part of the Center for Homeland Defense and Security's course on Critical Infrastructure Protection taught by Kip Hawley at the Naval Postgraduate School. "It has been over ten years since the September 11 terrorist attacks, yet most would agree that commercial airline passengers still don't experience smart security at today's airport security checkpoints. If 99.9% of passengers pose no terrorist risk whatsoever, why is every one of them treated as if they are a high-risk threat? This module, by former Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, Kip Hawley, examines some of the reasons why 'smart security' is so difficult - and how a combination of varied tactics is the most effective solution - and why."
