Identify the most salient vulnerabilities associated with key assets within sectors.

Dear Writer 355342, Hello again! It is my pleasure to resume working on the new two courses of this term. These two courses are: Public Health Implications of Disater (core requirement) & Homeland Security (elective course). As per our recent message, I have this order for week 3 belonging to the course of Homeland Security and Defense for the program of my master which is Disaster Medicine and management. There is NO order for Public Health this week, so please just concentrate on this order.
– I will start with the course description (taken from the syllabus I’ve sent you before): DMM 612 Foundations of Homeland Security and Defense The United States has embraced the homeland security monolith having neither fully understood nor tamed all that it encompasses. This challenging course provides a broad overview of homeland security and homeland defense as undertaken in the United States since 9/11 and under different administrations. The goal is to provide the generally accepted body of knowledge required of the homeland security professional. The course focuses on four areas: the enemy, why they hate us, and the threat they pose; the policies and procedures enacted since 9/11; the key players at the federal, state and local levels; and legal issues critical to the conduct of homeland security and defense activities by the National Guard. The student will be gain an understanding in asymmetric thinking, develop an appreciation for the growing body of literature in the discipline of homeland security, and have the opportunity to examine a key issue in depth through a term research paper.
– The required Textbooks for this course (please see the syllabus 1. Forst, Brian – Terrorism, Crime, and Public Policy, ISBN: 978-0-521-67642-7 2. Harmon, C.C., Pratt, A.N., Gorka, S. – Toward a Grand Strategy Against Terrorism, ISBN: 978-0-07-352779-6
-The topic of this week, Wk 3: Infrastructure: Vulnerability and Analysis
(NOTE that there is a relationship between this topic of Wk 3 and the topic of the slides you’ve benn working on)
1. – THE RESOURCES (Reading Assignments) OF THIS WEEK: (PLEASE USE SOME OF THEM WHEN DOIN G THE ASSIGNMENT OF THIS WEEK): Critical infrastructures are too large and complex for us to protect every mile, building, bridge, ship, airplane, and power sub-station. Complete coverage would be far too expensive and difficult to implement. So the canonical challenge of critical infrastructure protection is how to create a policy that achieves maximal prevention and protection given limited resources.
