Abstract : I am going to deal with four issues tonight. First, why and where terrorists attack businesses. Second, the strategies that American firms have employed to counter those threats. Third, the costs to the firm both the terrorist attacks and the company's response. And, finally, because I understand there is interest in this topic, I will make some observations on the hostage experience.
