- Threat & Risk Assessment
Burns & McDonnell performed a detailed threat and risk assessment (TARA) for a campus steam plant and proposed gas metering station at a Big 10 university. This initiative supported the transition coal-burning turbines to natural gas. To complete the TARA, our team met with the Department of Homeland Security, state, local and campus law enforcement and compiled information. This information was refined to establish identifying potential threats, the risks those threats posed, and assigned probability and impact of an occurrence. Risks examined ranged from terrorist attacks to trespassing and vandalism.
In addition to presenting the findings of the TARA, we also developed a comprehensive list of mitigation options to be considered at each site. Options identified were selected to be in concurrence with established university security guidelines and included policies, procedures and technological requirements such as cameras and access control, and CPTED principals.
