HLSS 310 America Military University Sociology Question


Government Facilities Sector Materials and Waste Sector

Scenario: River is still enjoying working in the section and asked you once again to provide some more information on the critical infrastructures you two have been talking about. Determine the ones from your most recent two discussions that you did not discuss yet. You realize that out of the four lifeline critical infrastructures you only discussed two of them in the previous papers, so you decide to add the other two lifelines in this final paper. Since you have four critical infrastructures this time, determine which one of them you will use to discuss a physical attack, which one for a cyber event, one for a natural disaster, and for the remaining one pick any one of the three threats. 

River asked you again to keep the format the same as last times since they worked really good in explaining various aspects of the critical infrastructures. You determined to use the following outline for each of the four sections (plus the overarching requirements):

Description of a Hypothetical Threat (physical, cyber, or natural disaster)

Brief background on the Critical Infrastructure as it relates to National Security

Elaborate on the known Risks/Threats/Hazards/Vulnerabilities from the Hypothetical Threat

Explain how damage to the from the Hypothetical Threat could impact the Dependencies/Interdependencies between critical infrastructure sectors

Existing Resiliency related to Continuity of Operations

Consider how to Minimize Disruption that improves First Responder Safety. 

  • Technical Requirements
  • Your paper must be approximately 8 pages – 2 pages per critical infrastructure discussed (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).
  • Scholarly and/or credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least two sources per page of content.
  • Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double-spaced.
  • Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework. 
  • Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, documents, etc.

All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
