This paper assesses the impact of the September 11th terrorist attacks and its after-eÂ®ects

11th resulted in both a negative transitory shock of over 30% and an ongoing negative demand
shock amounting to roughly 7.4% of pre-September 11th demand. This ongoing demand shock
has yet to dissipate (as of November 2003) and cannot be explained by economic, seasonal, or

Computer security experts have a lot of expertise that can be applied to the real world. First and foremost, we have well-developed senses of what security looks like.

The Ministry of Justice and the police has been given a more distinct responsibility for coordinating the administration of work on safety, security and emergency planning within the civil sector. .The principle of decentralisation states that the responsibility for crisis management should be handled at the lowest possible level.
