The Security and Defense Specialty Group (SDSG), formed in December 2009, focuses on the development and application of risk analysis to security and defense. These domains present unique and challenging opportunities for the risk analysis community, and benefit from dedicated focus within the Society. It is our belief that the security and defense community has a need for increased interaction and engagement with the academic and broader risk analysis communities to ensure that the best minds and approaches are brought to bear on some of our toughest problems. As such, SDSG has three objectives: first, to provide a forum for the sharing and exchange of ideas related to the unique risk and decision analysis challenges in security and defense; second, to encourage the use of sound analytic practice in security and defense analyses; and third, to encourage and facilitate the advancement of the state-of-the-art with respect to security and defense risk analysis.
