Please join us for SRA's next webinar on Tues. 2/14 at 12-1 EST.
This webinar will overview methods for national security risk quantification and optimal resource allocation that is applicable to a variety of venues such as mass transit, critical infrastructure protection, and large-scale or high profile events (e.g., sporting events).
The method explored during this webinar breaks down the three core components of risk - consequence, vulnerability, and threat - into their subcomponents that can be evaluated against the given venue and potential threat(s) of interest. Risk is computed as a product of the three components. The next step is to assess the effectiveness of the various security resources available
