Terrorism is one of the most serious threats to peace and security for our society.
Besides being a painful and abominable act for all involved, the economic consequences of terrorism are enormous. They are not only measured by material and tangible losses, but also by the uncertainty in the community after each event. That can result in the slow down and paralysis of a once prosperous and stable economy.
The damages from terrorist attacks are so large that they can be comparable to natural disasters. Predicting where the next terrorist attack will take place falls under the capabilities of any assessment and risk mitigation model. It is a challenge that the community and businesses constantly face these days.
Unfortunately, all of us are prone to experience these events, and as such we must take measures to lessen the impact of their consequences.
