C. Points Possible: 75
D. Submission Format:

This deliverable should be submitted by start of class March 29, 2016.
E. Page Requirement:

Minimum of Threefor Background Section– not including pictures or diagrams

No requirement on Site Survey Questions / Checklist – No page requirement but should meet the number of questions requirement
F. Deliverable Purpose:

The purpose of the phase two deliverable is two-fold. First, students will develop a building / facility background section that will be inserted into the final report. Second, the student will utilize the checklists found at the conclusion of Fennelly’s chapter THREE and develop a customized list of questions/checklist for their specific building / facility.

G. Deliverable Instructions:

Part One: Critical Infrastructure Background

This deliverable will be a componentwithin your final report (students are highly encouraged to add additional information and make changes based on instructor feedback prior to final submission of the report). The background will give the reader the details of the overall facility without them (the reader) having to step foot on the facility grounds. It is extremely important to be very detailed in describing the different characteristics. While general guidelines/tips will be provided below, each facility will have its own intricacies.
Information within this deliverable should include, but is not limited to:

• FACILITY SUMMARY: (Actual Brick and Mortar, not the services they provide)
o General Size / Area
o Number of Buildings
o Sensitive Areas
o Construction Materials (Brick, Wood, Etc)
o Amount of Land Owned by Facility
o What is the general vicinity of the facility (next door, across the street, etc.) and how might this impact its security
o Very similar to what may have been submitted under phase one of the project (with additions)

o Discussion of the criticality of the facility (aka, why should it be protected)
o If it is attacked / compromised, what is the impact to the average U.S. citizen
o See United States Department of Homeland Security Infrastructure information on the site/facility’s sector that you selected.
o See http://www.dhs.gov/critical-infrastructure

o A summary of the services rendered/products manufactured at the facility
o Have there been any substantial security incidents at the facility in the last 2-3 years, if so, describe.

o Does a private guard force protect the facility
o Are there any existing security technologies at the facility, BE SPECIFIC!
o Who is responsible for security at the Facility

• The inclusion of building / facility pictures and diagrams is also a great addition in this section.

• Other items as deemed necessary.
Part Two: Site Survey Questions / Checklist

Part two of the phase two deliverable is the development of the security survey questions and/or checklist. These are the actual questions that you will ask of / observe from your building / facility. As you have read, chapter THREE within the Fennelly text provides a comprehensive explanation of security site surveys. Additionally, the two chapters from the Broder text (in course documents) will also provide additional clarification. At the end of Fennelly’s chapter THREE, there are several question sets divided by categories:
• Physical Security Survey
• Security Officers Checklist
• Office Security Checklist
• Home Security Checklist
• Fire Inspection Checklist

Each infrastructure has unique characteristics which in turn affect the types of questions that you ask.For example, if an infrastructure has no safes, you do not need to ask questions about safes.
Students should select approximately 40 questions from the various categories within the physical security survey, 5 Questions from the Security Officers Checklist and 5 questions from the Office Security. This equates to 50 total questions. Please note: If the facility does not employ security officers use the questions to inquire about public law enforcement response to the facility.
Questions should be selected after permission has been obtained from the building supervisor (Phase One) and the student has a good understanding of what the building contains, purpose (Part one of the Phase Two Deliverable – Critical Infrastructure Background). The questions should be listed in a numbered format and submitted with part one. It would be helpful if you leave yourself some room under each question to collect answers when you conduct the on-site survey. Please note: You do not need to answer the questions for phase two; the answers will be included in the narrative of the final report (Phase Three).

Part One: Building / Facility Background

Jones Oil Company
123 Main Street
Richmond, KY 40475

Bob Jones, President
(859) 222-3333

Critical Infrastructure Sector
Facility Background

Business Description/ Services
Jones Oil Company is a wholesale distribution operation handling large amounts of refined petroleum products including gasoline, diesel, and lubricants. The business boasts a commercial fleet fueling system known as “Fleet Card” which allows customers to fuel vehicles with Jones Oil with the use of a membership card swiped at the pump. In addition to distributing these products to other businesses and remote facilities, the main plant also houses a self-service fuel station accessible 24 hours a day to Fleet Card customers. The customers supplied by Jones Oil Company include emergency services, police forces, local universities, waste management fleets, commercial service vehicles, other fuel stations, etc.
The main plant consists of two buildings, six above ground storage tanks capable of holding 20,000 gallons each, a pump station used to transfer products to and from delivery truck and the self-service fuel station. Among the company’s assets, Jones Oil owns five fixed axel tankers as well as several full-sized pick-ups and sport utility vehicles. Ability to access the primary facility is limited by the gated fence; however, access to the fueling station must be open to customers for use at all times. No major incidents involving criminal activity have been reported at the facility by its president.
Diagram 1
The company’s main facility is between one and two acres in size. The two buildings found within the barrier of an existing perimeter fence are warehouse-style metal on wood framing. Because the facility itself does not handle cash, sensitive areas are reduced to include the storage tank area, main office building, and pump station areas (see Diagram 1). An exploitation of any of these parts of the facility would be crippling to the ability of the company to operate.
Neighboring the facility is a medium sized automobile dealership handling new and used cars and trucks. Across the two lane road in front of the facility is a large commercial plaza including a home improvement/ building supply store as well as a bank. The facility is on a light traffic road near an intersection with a larger avenue. Behind the facility, the border of the property is defined by railroad tracks which separate the facility from large fields. The facility is within one mile of the only area hospital, an emergency medical service station, and a fire station; a large military installation known as The Bluegrass Depot, known to store chemical weapons as well as military grade munitions is within three miles.
Because of the relatively large scale of this business, as well as the variety of emergency services that fuel their fleets with Jones Oil Co., the need to protect this facility are increased. Depending on the nature of an attack or intrusion to this facility, the damage could be detrimental to the surrounding areas. Because of its location, an attack could potentially be prompted for reasons including terrorism and vandalism. If the facility should be compromised and the petroleum vapors released and ignited, the facilities and some neighboring property could become total losses due to thermal, percussion, and fire damage.
To the average citizen, a compromise of this business could reduce the local supply of refined petroleum products enough to potentially drive gasoline prices up as well as damage that could be cause by the explosion of these volatile chemical mixtures. The potential for exploiting the facility is limitless, however, undoubtedly extends beyond the boundaries of the property itself.

Current Security Infrastructure
The facility does currently have some physical security infrastructure in place. Among the perimeter defenses, the facility is surrounded with an eight-foot-tall galvanized chain link fence topped with strands of barbed-wire, and most of the perimeter is well lit. The buffer zones between the customer fuel station and the main facility are well defined, created a fairly effective psychological barrier.
With regard to the building security, both buildings have been installed with an unmonitored auto-dialer intruder alarm system activated after business hours. All of the doors are industrial steel doors; however, the front door of the main office building (see Diagram 1) is a model with a large glass window. All entry doors are currently lock and key models with a limited number of key holding employees. Internal defenses are apparently limited, since there is no exchange of money at the facility, the need for a strong room exists for limited use (i.e. confidential paperwork, industrial secrets, main security controller systems, etc.), however, the construction appears to be drywall on wood framing.
