Summary
This testimony focuses on the work that has been done over the past five years on combating terrorism and recommendations advocating a risk management approach for such programs. Risk management is a systematic process to analyze threats, vulnerabilities, and the criticality (or relative importance) of assets to better support key decisions linking resources with prioritized efforts for results. This testimony will take a more strategic and longer-term view to help guide future programs and responses to combat terrorism and other threats. Some Federal agencies have taken steps related to risk management, but the results have been inconclusive. After threat, vulnerability, and criticality assessments have been completed and evaluated in this risk-base decision process, key actions can be taken to better prepare the United States against potential attacks or events. Without a risk management approach, there is little assurance that programs to combat terrorism are prioritized and properly focused
