Business Threat Awareness Council Member Creates Resource Site for Security Information

21 December 2005

New York, NY — Business Threat Awareness Council board member, Richard Horowitz, Esq recently launched a resource website for security professionals.

The site, is a compilation of Internet resources edited by Mr. Horowitz where topics from Arms Control and Arms Dealers to Terrorism and WMD can be researched in depth with a few clicks. There is also a section on Economic Espionage, Money Laundering, and Human Rights.

“This site grew from of a database that I created over the years for my own research”, Horowitz said. “One day I realized that I had amassed a substantial volume of security related ‘favorites' that could save other investigators a lot of search time.” front page is deceptively simple. Though clearly organized into generalized topics, this portal runs quite deep and users can drill down to a high degree of specificity. Whether you want to keep up with the courtroom antics of Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein or find out where the landmines are (literally), this is the place to do it.

Mr. Richard Horowitz is a New York City attorney concentrating in corporate, security, and international matters. He holds a private investigator's license and served in the Israel Defense Forces, where he was involved in national security projects and attained the rank of captain. He served as security consultant for a public relations event held for Bosnia under the auspices of the president of the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 and prepared educational material for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Mr. Horowitz is also a distinguished speaker. In June of this year he spoke to members of the Business Threat Awareness Council on two related topics, (1) terrorist threats, and (2) allowable uses of intelligence gathering by corporations. Notes from his address can be viewed at
