Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

Hospitals and healthcare facilities face a unique set of challenges in an active shooter incident. These incidents have no patterns in victim selection or method, creating an unpredictable and quickly evolving situation that can lead to loss of life and injury. Numerous factors associated with hospital and healthcare environments complicate traditional response to active shooter incidents, including the “duty-to-care”, also known as “duty-to-act”, commitment and the varying levels of patient mobility and patient special needs.

Supply Chain Risks for Information and Communication Technology

U.S. critical infrastructure relies on Information and Communications Technology (ICT)—defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology as “the capture, storage, retrieval, processing, display, representation, presentation, organization, management, security, transfer, and interchange of data and information”—for daily operations and functionality. The Design, Development and Production, Distribution, Acquisition and Deployment, Maintenance, and Disposal phases of the ICT supply chain are susceptible to the malicious or inadvertent introduction of vulnerabilities such as malicious software and hardware; counterfeit components; and poor product designs, manufacturing processes, and maintenance procedures.
