ONLINE EDUCATIONAL INCIDENT RESPONSE TRAINING: VIRTUAL WORLDS AS A COST EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR HOMELAND AND CYBER SECURITY

Critical incident leadership and planning is an important topic in the field of homeland security. Within this field are many challenges. For the purposes of this forum only two shall be discussed. The two challenges related to critical incident leadership and planning is the ability to learn in a simulated environment and funding. The first challenge surrounds learning as there is a significant cost associated in providing a real life scenarios where employees can learn. Employees need to understand how they should react in a simulated process to ensure that they can perform in the real event. This simulated scenario also allows an independent group to measure the effectiveness of the incident response manager. An inexpensive and effective method to do this would be through the
utilization of Second Life (SL). SL is one of the most popular virtual world provides a unique and secure teaching and learning environment for instructors and students. This learning environment could be designed to be private for a specific response group or incident where each avatar assigned to a unique name could include the name of group name that the individual is belong to. The second issue,
which surrounds funding, directly correlates with the capabilities and readiness to respond to a group. To properly correct this one would need to find a method to assign funding needs to risks or events that are most likely to occur.
