SEC 112 Introduction to Homeland Security

3 hours

With the majority of U.S. key critical infrastructures privately owned or operated, the private security sector plays a prominent, albeit often overlooked, role in homeland security. This course provides an overview of U.S. homeland security, threats to homeland security, and the role of private security in homeland security. It also examines the Department of Homeland Security and its mission, objectives, structure, responsibilities, and operations, and the challenges it faces. Special attention will be paid to critical infrastructure protection in the United States.
