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.
