Like most Americans, on this anniversary of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, today our staff pauses to give special tribute to all of those heroes who perished on 9/11/01
While no other single event has come close to the devastation we endured on 9/11/01, we’ve since seen many other acts of terrorism committed, other attempted acts that have been thankfully foiled, and we now deal with the threat of terrorism in cyberspace, in addition to in public physical spaces, such as airports, train stations, large gathering areas.
As a result, security leaders must assess and respond to these threats every day now in a world that has changed so much in just a decade – a world that cannot go back in time and erase this horrific event.
In a recent article, written by Joan Goodchild, she reflects on the fact that after 9/11, security was no longer an afterthought in the United States. Security became a paramount concern in government, in business, in transportation and in all of our personal lives.
