1. The United States Department of homeland security (DHS) was formed in 2002 as a cabinet department in the US Federal government, that was established as a response to the attacks on America – the 9/11 attacks. The responsibility of the DHS was therefore to protect the US territory as well as its protectorates from responding to security threats (Perl, 2014).
2. The DHS combined a total of 22 diverse federal departments as well as agencies into an integrated, unified cabinet agency. The main agencies included: US citizenship and immigration services, US customs and border protection, Federal Emergency management agency, US immigration and customs enforcement; Transport security administration; US coast guard, national protection and programs directorate, and US secret service (Lipton, 2006).
3. a.One dimensional security is a security formation that emphasizes relative mobility, high knowledge sharing level, intensity, relative availability of assets, and general complacency in information sharing.
b.Piecemeal security uses a security information process that happens gradually, and is usually reinforced in regular intervals because it isn’t satisfactory.
c.Reactive Security involves putting measures into place, that prevent loses as a result of dedicating resources to the maintenance of security.
d.Packaged security systems offer proven security combinations that serve to address particular industrial security issues.
- 4. The four essential risk management steps include: identification of foreseeable hazards at the place of work, assessment of the risk amount of the hazard, control of hazard and if possible complete removal of risk, and lastly review and assessing to monitor (Wolf, 2007).

Overall the responses to the questions should have been more substantive.
Question #1 - who was apponited as the Director and what changes occurred in 2005.
Question #2 - the response did not list the 22 agencies merged into the DHS.
Question #3 - the response provided a goo description of the four security terms presented. Packaged security is also known as integrated security.
Question #4 - the response gave the 4 steps, but was not substantive.
