In the past few years, bombings and bomb threats have been on the rise in the US at health clinics, animal testing facilities, and government or high profile buildings. Some multinational corporations receive up to 10 bomb threats in a single day. Only by proper threat management can modern commercial and industrial enterprises maintain continuity in their normal business operations. Regardless of whether or not a security professional has experienced a threat, he or she must always have a policy in place for one. Whether or not the security professional can defuse the bomb isn't as important as whether or not he or she can evaluate the premises and establish a policy to deal with an emergency.
