Master of Homeland Security

Find the best masters in homeland security online degrees

Especially since September 11, 2001, there has been a high level of attention paid to aviation security in both the commercial and private sectors. However, other forms of transport are also vulnerable to attack, and transport systems are also used to move illicit materials including weapons and drugs around the country and across national borders. Transport protection is a serious national security issue, and also one of moral significance. Human trafficking rings rely on weak border and transport security to secretly move kidnapped persons across national borders and force them into slavery or indentured servitude. Large-scale theft, terrorism, human trafficking, and other major organized crime operations are all enabled by weak transport security. The sites listed here have information on the latest strategies being used to increase security in commercial transport, freight and cargo movement, and any movement of people or stuff across national borders.

Human Trafficking Prevention

Slavery is illegal almost everywhere in the world, but that doesn’t stop underground crime syndicates from forcing people into unpaid labor by kidnapping them and removing them from their own countries without food or supplies. Weak transport and border security systems make this awful practice a possibility, but there are plenty of organizations working to put an end to human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad.
