Breaching the U.S. Capitol's Perimeter Security

On 6 January 2021, a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol and delayed a joint session of Congress that was in the process of certifying the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election results.

After the attack, the U.S. Senate Committees on Rules and Administration and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs launched an investigation into the security posture of the Capitol leading up to the incident.

The congressional report made a series of recommendations to improve security assessments, planning, and implementation at the Capitol that private security professionals can learn from.
