    My Company A Terror Target

    A couple of weeks ago, I was heading toward my boss's office and his secretary stopped me and said the FBI was in his office. I said, OK, I'll get him some other time. I didn't know what it was about and I didn't ask him figuring it was none of my business.

    Last week, he called me and some other key members in the organization and told us that our company was found listed as a terror target on one of the terrorism websites the FBI found. It doesn't appear that we are a high value target, but we are a target nonetheless. A day after the meeting I went in to my boss's office and asked him if I should consider carrying my carry weapon in to my office (guns are prohibited in our workplace). He stated his was in his brief case. That's all I needed to hear.

    Nah, I do feel better now, however. They put a bunch of security cameras in. I figure that way they will know who the terrorist was after they get done with their mission.

    Common sense? Good to hear there is still some left. Sometimes I wonder.

    Sounds like you have a level headed and practical boss there. Sounds like a good place to work too.

    Our CEO was listed on a terrorist list. We found out in the trail of that last one. We still have a strict NO WEAPONS policy in the workplace. Weapons are only allowed on the range.

    Apersonally owned weapon is a good thing--however, is the company going to have any kind of anti-terorrist training for its folks? Remember the old fire-drills when we were in grade school--training for "what happens if...."

    I think that your company should also implement a contingency plan for a "terrorist attack". I would think that the most likely scenario would involve a Mumbai style attack where armed men storm into the company and begin shooting everyone. Therefore, the best plan would be to implement a contingency plan on how to handle an active shooter inside the company's premises. There should be an evacuation route, a safe meeting point and several key office members that carry firearms and have training.

    Don't forget to also consider a cyber attack, so it would be good to involve the IT guys as well.

    Have someone rub bacon grease on the handles of all the entry points each and every morning. Problem solved.
