It presents common-sense methodologies in a straightforward manner and is accessible to those who have no experience with energy infrastructure or homeland security. Readers gain an understanding of the challenge of domestic preparedness_that is, an immediate need for a heightened state of awareness of the present threat facing the energy infrastructure industrial sector as a potential terrorist target_as well as knowledge of security principles and measures that can be implemented, adding a critical component not only to one's professional knowledge but also giving one the tools needed to combat terrorism.
