Information on Specific Threats

CNBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive)


A chemical attack is the deliberate release of a toxic gas, liquid or solid that can poison people and the environment.
 



A biological attack is the deliberate release of germs or other biological substances that can make you sick. Unlike an explosion, a biological attack may or may not be immediately obvious
 



A radiation threat or "Dirty Bomb" is the use of common explosives to spread radioactive materials over a targeted area. It is not a nuclear blast. The force of the explosion and radioactive contamination will be more localized.
 


A nuclear blast is an explosion with intense light and heat, a damaging pressure wave and widespread radioactive material that can contaminate the air, water and ground surfaces for miles around.
 



An explosive is a substance, or prepared chemical that explodes or causes an explosion. Approximately 70% of all terrorist attacks worldwide involve explosives.
 



Cyber Security is the protection  of sensitive information in electronic form and the associated information technology resources. With the increase in cyber crime, hacker attacks, identity theft, and threats from terrorists there is a need to secure mission critical data and sensitive information.
