Red Teaming for Disaster Preparedness
DomPrep Journal
July 28, 2021
Many companies and government offices were unprepared for the COVID-19 pandemic and sustained lockdowns, despite years of warnings and guidance from experts and the federal government. This lack of preparedness cost companies dearly, from delays in setting up work from home software to supply chain disruptions that could have been mitigated against – if not prevented. In addition to better business continuity planning, the use of red teaming could have possibly spared certain organizations’ reputation hits
and some monetary losses. Similarly, organizations can use red teaming or a red team mindset to bolster disaster preparedness.

The Far-Right Domestic Extremist Threat to the Power Grid
Homeland Security Today (HSToday)
March 24, 2020
My article on the far-right's threat to the U.S. power grid, components of which are very vulnerable to attacks. Even more troubling would be a simultaneous attack on components in the same geographic area, especially during a crisis (pandemic, natural disaster, etc.). The article discusses the far-right's aspirations and attack planning on the nation's power grid.

3 Keys to Hardening Concert Venues Against Inevitable Attack Attempts
Homeland Security Today (HSToday)
November 25, 2018
Plots against concerts and special events will continue to occur at the hands of the full spectrum of lone offenders/homegrown violent extremists and terrorist groups. Based on some of their past attacks, motivations, intentions, and capabilities, some might succeed.

In the article, I highlight some trends I see in the roughly 30 attacks on concerts and special events I found that occurred between January 2015 and fall of 2018. Based partly on these attacks, I assess the most likely and most dangerous threats to concerts and special events into 2020.

Regardless of the perpetrator, there are key steps security personnel should take to mitigate the risks of attacks on these type of events, including the basics — what I call “Protect the P3”.

1 Webinar
Making Personal Safety a Priority: Lessons for Public Officials, Criminal Justice Professionals and Victim Advocates
Justice Clearinghouse
February 25, 2021
This webinar will explain how to understand and mitigate risks to personal safety. It will show how public officials and criminal justice professionals can increase their personal safety and the safety of those for whom they are responsible. The webinar will also be useful for victim advocates, providing the means to mitigate against intimate partner stalking and violence. Drawing upon proven best practices from the executive protection industry and other security disciplines, this training will provide tips on how public officials and others, such as domestic violence victims, can “harden” their physical security and online privacy.

Specifically, the webinar explains the basics of:

Risks 101 (basics of risk, and human obstacles to accurately assessing risk)
Physical Security (stalking, threatening, and attacking public figures and intimate partners; selecting an executive protection/personal protection team; when protectees are most at risk)
Cyber Security and Online Privacy (three cybersecurity basics everyone should implement right now)
