RECOGNIZING SECURITY BLOWBACK: Active Shooter Prevention and Response and Best Practices
The CIA coined the term “blowback” in 1953, denoting the unintended consequences, side-effects, or suffered repercussions of a covert operation. To the civilians suffering the blowback of covert operations, the effect typically manifests itself as "random" acts of violence without a discernible, direct cause.
With active shooter situations, security professionals can mitigate the event more successfully if they know the circumstances of why an employee or outside party wants to create harm. Thus, blowback is an important and relevant term for security professionals to prevent and respond to active shooters.
