You are the critical infrastructure protection (CIP) specialist in the plans directorate of a public safety organization in one of the 100 largest metropolitan statistical areas in the United States. Based on the total number of Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR) in your jurisdiction (national, state, county, and local), you have been tasked by the director of public safety to develop some courses of action to inform a recommendation regarding the use of available resources for protection of CIKR. The director understands the complexities associated with the many contributing factors and realizes that there will always exist a shortfall or deficiency between essential tasks and available resources. The director also understands there will never be one solution that captures everything that needs to be considered and accomplished. The director will make the final decision based on your assessment. Guidance Keep the following in mind as you work on this assignment: You should base your recommendations by completing a risk analysis using the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA)-approved risk analysis table (introduced in Phase 3), the National Planning Scenarios, and the Joint National Priorities for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience. This is a draft formal report. Assignment Guidelines Complete the following for this assignment: Select a metropolitan area in the United States that you plan to analyze for this assignment. Because this project is a preparation for the Phase 5 Group Project, coordination is required with your small group to determine and select an appropriate metropolitan area. Address the following in 1,500–1,750 words: What are 5–10 of the most significant CIKR assets that exist within your metropolitan area? Explain in detail. Select 2 CIKR assets from your list above, and conduct a risk analysis on each using the National Planning Scenarios. Coordinate with your small group teammates to avoid duplication of effort in the Group Project during Phase 5. What are the most important resources that the metropolitan area has available for the protection of its CIKR? Explain in detail. For each of the selected CIKR, provide a detailed recommendation of how you would use the available resources to protect these CIKR. This should be the majority of your submission. What challenges exist for the metropolitan area regarding CIP? Explain your response. How will these challenges be overcome? Explain in detail. Provide recommendations and justification of those recommendations to the director.

A first term Senator has just been elected to US Senate. He has spent his entire career as a medical doctor. Given the significance of health related public policy issues, he ran for office and won his first election. There is one problem. Because of the Senator’s lack of experience in government and with policy issues, he has asked three staff persons to help him formulate his approach to government. He has asked his Chief of Staff, his Legislative Director, and one of his Legislative Assistants to help him. You have just been brought on to serve as one of his Legislative Assistants. Because of your expertise in public policy, you are the one LA he asks for assistance. He wants your insights, based on research from your course work and outside research that will help him formulate his approach to government.

Specifically, the Senator is asking you to answer the following questions: • What is the proper role of the government? • What are its central responsibilities? What are the limits to governmental power?
