Border Security Tools

The United States Coast Guard (USCG) monitors 95,000 miles of coastline and hundreds of ports, as well as waterways, rivers, and lakes. The USCG Domestic Port Security Evaluation Division provides tools to assess, analyze, and mitigate risks of maritime terrorism. A tool introduced in 2001 was the Port Security Risk Assessment Tool, used to assess vulnerabilities and potential consequences of attack. Building upon its strengths, the Maritime Security Risk Analysis Model was developed in 2006. The division released an extension of this tool in 2013, called the Risk Management Workspace. These tools have improved security and communication, and they are essential to protecting United States borders.
