There are others. Please thumb back through our postings to capture the full scope of our analysis.

As is true with pretty much all issues in emergency management, much has already been said and much has already been written on this topic. Although this is one of the newest topics in EDM, it's not unexplored. So presented for your consideration and education today are the following resources. They are presented by two remarkable individuals: Richard A. Clarke and Peter W. Singer. Both have unassailable credentials on the topic, and both have presented their educational efforts in three different media: video; non-fiction; and fiction. So I've presented these three media for your education and enjoyment. Please DO enjoy.
