Security of Soft Targets and Crowded Places--Resource Guide   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Resource Matrix: "Segments of our society are inherently open to the general public, and by nature of their purpose do not incorporate strict security measures. Given the increased emphasis by terrorists and other extremist actors to leverage less sophisticated methods to inflict harm in public areas, it is vital that the public and private sectors collaborate to enhance security of locations such as transportation centers, parks, restaurants, shopping centers, special event venues, and similar facilities. Securing these locations is essential to preserving our way of life and sustaining the engine of our economy. The Infrastructure Security Division (ISD), part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), is committed to improving the security and resilience of soft targets by providing relevant tools, training, and programs to both the public and private sectors, and the general public. This guide is a catalog of ISD soft target resources, many of which were created in collaboration with our partners to ensure they are useful and reflective of the dynamic environment we live in."
