Additionally, other core facets (homeland defense, defense of the commons, etc.) would suffer.

3. Conclusion In order for Homeland Security to promote and enhance security, risk management need to be applied in all its security based initiatives. Risk management strategies are crucial in identifying, preventing, mitigating and controlling risks. The success of a risk management system will depend on the commitment of the whole team: from top management to junior employees. In addition, the partners and the public need to be involved.

Policies written by an organization, which encompasses guidelines or mandates from a government entity are therefore ensure a layered approach. Reference SANS Institute. (2003).
Risk Optimization line on the graph is showing the point that is determined as the amount of loss likely to happened and is accepted and the cost of the countermeasures that will minimise the risk to that point. Calculate the budget required for those countermeasures. If management chooses not to fund a recommended countermeasure, acceptance must be conscious that the failure to introduce countermeasures will likely create a much larger amount loss.
This paper will examine the effects domestic factors have on the shaping of national security policies. First, it will use various arguments from a select number of previous literature to examine how domestic institutional structures, public opinion, budget politics, and leadership traits play a role in these policies. Next, it will use these arguments to in the context of American politics by presenting several examples found domestically. Lastly, this paper will examine these domestic factors to illustrate how it has misaligned U.S. security policy from actual security threats. The contours of the American government plays a large role in determining national security policy.
This is because it is concentrating on using flexibility and key concepts to assess / address any vulnerabilities. For all organizations, this makes them more prepared for the challenges they will face in the future. This prevents security breaches through taking an all encompassing approach and objectively analyzing what is happening. These changes will help to deal with deficiencies the agency is facing when it comes to contingency planning, security management and access controls. These recommendations will require short term increases in the IT budget to improve training, monitoring and update technology.
Because risk management is time consuming supply professionals can spend a large portion of their time in planning and assessing supply risk, they need to rationalize the investment that they make in each buying situation by identifying its distinguishing characteristics. If the buying situation is novel, involves critical high-tech items, and requires high levels of security in its production and delivery to customers the risks of failure can be prohibitive. In this scenario, supply professional should rely on early supplier involvement, share and assess supplier risk management plans, implement automatic integration with supplier operations, and increase and strengthen the flow

Critical infrastructure and key resources, otherwise known as CIKR “…includes systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacitation or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on national security, national economic security, public health or safety, or any combination of those matters” as defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (2009). (Long sentence it needs work.) To describe this more plainly, CIKR is what helps our nation communicate on multiple levels. If harmed in any way, this would adversely affect the mission of homeland
