Governments that fail to account for analysis of terrorists' personal information in allocating their defence budgets risk increased damage from terrorist attacks, new research from the Desautels Faculty of Management finds.
... Professor Mehmet Gumus and his PhD student Dr. Nikoofal find that there are two types of terrorists; either organised or unorganised. Organised terrorists observe the behaviours of governments and defence measures in place before they carry out an attack, while unorganised terrorists act without such planning.
Industry leaders have been reacting to the news that the US Congress has voted overwhelmingly in favor or reauthorizing the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act for six years. The vote stalled before Christmas after a senator objected but passed through both houses of Congress on Wednesday.
... Meanwhile an academic has warned that policies on protecting locations need to be more flexible. Professor Mehmet Gumus of Desautels Faculty of Management says that governments need to allow funds for analysis of terrorists’ behaviours.

He continued to work full-time while pursuing a master’s in power electronics, which he earned from Ryerson in 2008.
