Midterm Assignment

Drawing upon resource material provided and that discovered while conducting your own scholarly research, students are expected to develop a research paper of 4-5 pages in length (total, but not including title page and reference list) to fully answer the following two topics (both must be addressed):
Topic 1:  Fully describe the overall concepts of homeland security and homeland defense. Construct a response that provides the following information related to both homeland security and homeland defense:

Provide your own definition of homeland security.

It is only one “part of a larger Homeland Security Enterprise that includes [DHS] Departmental leaders and components [the 7 field agencies including USCG, CBP, ICE, USSS, etc], (plus) state, local, tribal, territorial and private sector partners and other…” http://www.dhs.gov/about-office-intelligence-and-analysis  Also remember the many other important federal agencies that play a role in HLS such as the the very important DOJ where the FBI under the Department of Justice is still the lead agency for countering terrorism in the US (not DHS).
Topic 2:  Provide an overview of our nation’s critical infrastructure with an emphasis on the following:
Its relationship to homeland security
Offer your assessment concerning our nation’s current infrastructure protection efforts — in what ways should they be addressed?
