    Sophisticated methods for defense against terrorism have been devised, used, or planned to protect important and exposed facilities of the U.S. government and industry. This paper attempts to expose methods of protection for secondary targets that also need defense against violent crimes, riots (violent civil disobedience), and direct or indirect acts of ferrorism. These secondary or collateral targets require a different (and more modest) approach as those for which large setbacks and significant hardening is justified. We present some examples of secondary protection based on risk assessment and various defense mechanisms appropriate for buildings with modest resources and defense possibilities.
