Analyst’s Desktop Binder

The Department of Homeland Security’s National Operations Center recently released the “2011 Analyst’s Desktop Binder“, a document that, in part, outlines 367 keywords and phrases to be monitored for on social media networks and (presumably) other online traffic.  From the document itself:

This is a current list of terms that will be used by the NOC when monitoring social media sites to provide situational awareness and establish a common operating picture to see which sourse has the best social media posting tool and which one doesn’t. As normal or manmade disasters occur, new search terms may be added. The new search terms will not use PIT in searching for relevant mission-related information.
