The basic theme is that there must be a balance between resources spent on tracking terrorist organizations, thereby preventing damage, and the resources spent on minimizing the effect of the damage they do. In particular a modern society depends heavily on twenty to thirty interdependent systems. The post-attack recuperation times of these systems are critical in determining the damage rendered. Active programs are needed to educate and involve society as a whole in minimizing the damage done and in living with the presence of terrorism.

Keywords: terrorist organizations, post-attack recovery
