Case Study- DUE APRIL 25 TH
The case study is a review of a current homeland security issue and one that affects the US. You will
prepare five to seven pages (not including the cover or reference pages) exploring the issue presented.
An abstract is not required. Follow the guidelines in either Course Content or in the conference. You
must post your selection in this conference. Current issues include but are not limited to border control,
funding allocation, infrastructure, cyber warfare, biotechnology, intelligence, transportation security,
incident response, civil liberties, resource allocation, capabilities, and immigration (the guideline
provides further topics). Make sure you can identify an issue relating to a topic. A narrow topic is easier
to write than a too broad topic.
The term paper consists of two parts. Part 1 – select a domestic or international terrorist organization
that threatens the U.S. homeland and complete a profile of that organization. The group profile should
be approximately 50 percent of the final paper and must include a discussion of the group’s ideology,
targeting, tactics, capability, and overall goals, analysis of attacks, and any statements or propaganda
released by the group. Make sure you have enough information on the group to address all these factors
and how it affects the US homeland.
