Naval Postgraduate School (U.S.). Center for Homeland Defense and Security
Deane, Dorian; Arp, Don, Jr.; Hartzell, John M.; Moon, Sage
The Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) essay contest, now in its fifth year, is aimed at stimulating original thought on issues in Homeland Security and Homeland Defense. CHDS launched the contest in 2008 to provide people from around the country the opportunity to express their opinions on homeland security issues and to suggest new ideas. The variety of the essay topics submitted, as well as the backgrounds of the authors, highlights the vast scope of the impact that homeland security policies, programs, and challenges have on our communities and professions. This year's contestants were asked to answer the following question: "Identify a theory or insight from a field outside homeland security that has not been applied to homeland security but should be." This compilation includes the winning essay "What Biological Systems Can Still Tell Us About Information Security" by Dorian Deane, and the three finalists essays: "The Foraging Tango: The Application of Optimal Foraging Theory to Counterterrorism Activities" by Don Arp Jr.; "Improving Homeland Security Through Loops and Links" by John M. Hartzell; and "Fighting Fear Appeal; Adopting Social Psychological Models to Inform Government Risk Communication" by Sage Moon.
