Risk Management Fundamentals

Homeland Security Risk Management Doctrine - April 2011

"Risk Management Fundamentals serves as a foundational document supporting DHS risk management efforts in partnership with the homeland security enterprise."

 

As noted in the 2010 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Report, the homeland security enterprise “refers to the collective efforts and shared responsibilities of Federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, non-governmental, private volunteer, and private sector partners — as well as individuals, families, and communities — to maintain critical homeland security capabilities. It connotes a broad-based community with a common interest in the safety and well being of America and American society."

Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Report: A Strategic Framework for a Secure Homeland

Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Report:

A Strategic Framework for a Secure Homeland February 2010

"The purpose of the first-ever Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) is to outline the strategic framework to guide the activities of participants in homeland security toward a common end.  A safe and secure homeland must mean more than preventing terrorist attacks from being carried out.  It must also ensure that the liberties of all Americans are assured, privacy is protected, and the means by which we interchange with the world---through travel, lawful immigration, trade, commerce and exchange---are secured."
