How should businesses prepare for the impact of terrorist attacks, natural disasters, pandemic illnesses and other emergencies? What steps can a business take to ensure continuity during and following such a disaster? This two-volume edited collection provides responses to these and other questions from prominent academics and business leaders who have weathered crises such as the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Asian tsunami. Their analyses signal a major step forward in the emerging academic and professional field of homeland security.Volume 1, "The Challenge of the New Age" looks at the specific ways disasters can impact businesses, both in the short and long term. The contributors - noted authorities in security and risk management, technology, public health, political science and business - recount their experiences of terrorist attacks and natural disasters, and explore the potential impacts of possible new disasters such as a pandemic influenza outbreak. Volume 2, "Solutions That Work" explains the roles played by government and private homeland security in the process of prevention, protection, damage mitigation, reaction and recovery from natural and man-made disasters. The contributors explore the critical partnership between government and business in preserving assets needed to ensure companies can continue doing business and be of service to the community in the event of an emergency. Real solutions are proposed and ongoing efforts are considered in this vital and invaluable book.Intended for the academic library, textbook, business practitioner and government audiences, this book's readership will range from academics and students in security studies, business and policy; business people in areas of information, security, human resources and high level management; to government officials such as emergency managers, public health officials, fire chiefs and inspectors, police department personnel and elected officials.
