Revise & add on written assignment

Complete the following for this assignment:

• Select a metropolitan area in the United States that you plan to analyze for this assignment. Because this project is a preparation for the Phase 5 Group Project, coordination is required with your small group to determine and select an appropriate metropolitan area.

• Address the following in 1,500–1,750 words:

◦ What are 5–10 of the most significant CIKR assets that exist within your metropolitan area? Explain in detail.

◦ Select 2 CIKR assets from your list above, and conduct a risk analysis on each using the National Planning Scenarios. Coordinate with your small group teammates to avoid duplication of effort in the Group Project during Phase 5.

◦ What are the most important resources that the metropolitan area has available for the protection of its CIKR? Explain in detail.

◦ For each of the selected CIKR, provide a detailed recommendation of how you would use the available resources to protect these CIKR.

▪ This should be the majority of your submission.

◦ What challenges exist for the metropolitan area regarding CIP? Explain your response.

◦ How will these challenges be overcome? Explain in detail.

◦ Provide recommendations and justification of those recommendations to the director.

• Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.


As a group, develop a single cohesive document that represents each of the sectors that you worked individually on in Phase 4. The group paper should include the following:

◦ Include all sectors addressed within the Individual Projects.

◦ Provide a risk matrix with detailed written explanations on the assignment of values for each of the 15 National Planning Scenarios.

◦ What recommendations can you make to prioritize CIKR by risk for each sector? Explain in detail.

◦ What is your group’s plan to effectively allocate available resources (federal or state) to implement protection-related activities for each sector? Explain in detail.

◦ Prioritize resource allocations based upon the conducted risk analysis for each sector.

Your group recommendation should, as much as possible, consider and reflect all that you have learned thus far and posit the most realistic, risk-driven, and resource-constrained methodology. Should you require additional material to aid in your analysis, try the Internet; there is nothing in this assignment requiring access to classified information.

Settings Common to All Groups

The Group Project expands upon the concepts developed during Phase 4 and expands the scope of the Phase 4 Individual Project to include all of the CIKR sectors (16 total). This is a formal information and decision support paper that you are developing for the director of Homeland Security of your chosen municipal community. The director’s intent is to share this risk analysis and resource allocation paper with the major department heads of the city, the city manager or administrator, the mayor, and the city council. The director’s goal is to enhance awareness of CIKR protection and resiliency issues and to improve overall CIKR security, planning, mitigation, response, recovery, and resiliency. The director also plans to use this assessment as a means and justification for additional funding of CIKR projects.

Use the following sectors:

• Transportation Systems Sector

◦ Rail and passenger

◦ Ferry and other port transportation modes

◦ Airports and airplanes

◦ Bridges

◦ Tunnels and vehicular (passenger)

• Government Facilities Sector

◦ Federal government facilities

◦ Commercial office buildings housing federal government offices

◦ Educational institutions

• Commercial Facilities Sector

◦ Shopping malls

◦ Sports complexes and exhibition halls

◦ Large, public gathering places

◦ Jewish facilities (community centers, schools, synagogues, etc.)

• Energy Sector

◦ Electrical power generation facilities

◦ Petroleum production facilities

◦ Natural gas production facilities

• Chemical Sector

◦ Basic chemicals

◦ Specialty chemicals (any of the 322 chemicals covered in the Chemical Facilities Antiterrorism Standards)

◦ Agricultural chemicals

◦ Pharmaceuticals

◦ Consumer products

The importance of conducting a complete risk analysis and including your combined matrices within this paper cannot be overstressed. You must provide a descriptive justification for why each element has been assigned a certain value within the context of your group paper.
