Security of Soft Targets and Crowded Places–Resource Guide

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), 2018

Soft targets and crowded places, a term more recently used, are typically defined as locations or environments that are easily accessible, attract large numbers of people on a predictable or semi-predictable basis, and may be vulnerable to attacks using simple tactics and readily available weapons. This guide provides an easy to use method to quickly find information on a wide range of free capabilities that can be incorporated into the security practices of organizations of all sizes. This includes guidance on how to identify suspicious behaviors, protect against unmanned aircraft systems, prepare and respond to active assailants, and prevent and respond to active bomb threats.
