520    The September 11 terrorist attacks have heightened 
       concerns about the security of the nation's icons and 
       parks, which millions of people visit every year. The 
       National Park Service (Park Service) within the Department
       of the Interior (Interior) is responsible for securing 
       nearly 400 park units that include icons and other parks. 
       In 2004, GAO identified a set of key protection practices 
       that include: allocating resources using risk management, 
       leveraging technology, information sharing and 
       coordination, performance measurement and testing, and 
       strategic management of human capital. As requested, GAO 
       determined whether the Park Service's security efforts for
       national icons and parks reflected key practices. To meet 
       this objective, GAO used its key practices as criteria, 
       reviewed five icons and parks to gain firsthand knowledge,
       analyzed Interior documents, and interviewed Interior 
       officials. GAO is making six recommendations to the 
       Secretary of the Interior. These include instructing the 
       Park Service to develop a more comprehensive risk 
       management approach, guidance and standards for leveraging
       technology, strategies to improve communications and to 
       clearly define staff roles, and programs related to 
       performance measurement, testing, and training.
