What is it?
Homeland Security, in the mind of most, refers to a Federal Governmental Agency that is generally responsible for safeguarding the United States of America, the homeland, against harm, destruction or attacks from domestic and foreign terrorist, as well as natural disasters. However, homeland security also refers to safety, preparedness and protocol relative to preparedness for companies, businesses entities, organizations, events, homes, individuals, etc. It is incumbent upon every individual and lawful for every entity to make a reasonable effort to ensure a safe, secure, and resilient environment, workplace, place of business and/or place of gathering against terrorism, natural disasters and other hazards.
