Byting Back -- Regaining Information Superiority Against 21st-Century Insurgents

RAND Counterinsurgency Study, Volume 1

By Martin C. Libicki et al.

Paperback • 194 pages • ISBN: 978-0-8330-4189-0

U.S. counterinsurgency efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan have failed to exploit information power, which could be a U.S. advantage but instead is being used advantageously by insurgents. Utilizing mostly available networking technology, the United States could achieve early, affordable, and substantial gains in the effectiveness of counterinsurgency and more open, integrated, and inclusive information networking with local populations, local authorities, and coalition partners. Based on a review of 160 requirements for counterinsurgency, the authors call for vastly better use of information technology than has been seen in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Each weekday, more than 12 million passengers take to U.S. railways.

In response, the authors provide a framework for security planners and policymakers to use to guide cost-effective rail-security planning, specifically for the risk of terrorism.

The Federal Role in Terrorism Insurance: Evaluating Alternatives in an Uncertain World

By Lloyd Dixon et al.

Paperback • 150 pages • ISBN: 978-0-8330-4235-4

Concerned that the unavailability of terrorism insurance would impede economic recovery and hinder growth after the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002 (TRIA). This monograph examines the implications of allowing TRIA to expire and of enhancements aimed at improving the availability and affordability of insurance for nuclear, biological, chemical, and radiological attacks.
