The Venue-Specific Threat Assessment model has been used by researchers at ICT to estimate the “attractiveness” of specific facilities to terrorist organizations. This paper will explore some of the issues that must be addressed in order to make this threat assessment model more widely applicable. In particular, we will examine the considerations used to generate one of the most crucial components of the model: the threat indices used for determining the dangers posed by terrorist organizations.
