Recognizing Hazards and Threats/Understanding Risk Assessment and Impact Analysis

  1. Based on your readings thus far from the text and your own research discuss what you believe are the top
    three hazards or threats your community faces? What is the difference between a hazard and a threat? What
    are the top three hazards the country as a whole faces? Why for each? What is the greatest of the hazards we
    face from CBRNE? Which one and why be it natural, accidental, or purposeful release? Finally, how does
    cyber play into this entire mix? Why?
  2. Based on your readings thus far from the text and your own research explain what a hazard analysis is and
    how it works. Now explain what an impact analysis is and how it works. What do you believe is our most
    vulnerable type critical infrastructure and why do you say that? Create a simple two-line (two hazards or threats
    identified) hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA) matrix for one hazard and include in the post. See figure 7.9 in
    your textbook for an example.
