The Citadel Risk Management and Threat Assessment


Scenario 1
You are the security manager of a business of approximately 25 people and working in a small building. Your business is in a suburban area outside of a major city. You have received unverified information that a former employee (terminated for sexual harassment) has threatened to “shoot the place up”. The employee has been diagnosed with a history of mental illness and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from military service in Iraq. What other information would you need to conduct a further Threat Assessment and how would you mitigate the risk to the company?
