BAS5 - Analysing infrastructure

This project presents and discusses methods for risk and vulnerability analysis relating to infrastructure in general, and to systems dependent on information and communication technology (ICT) in particular.

These methods are intended to provide decision support when choosing solutions and measures. Both accidents and conscious actions (security) are covered.

Funded in part by the Research Council of Norway, the project is a collaboration between the UiS, the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI), Proactima, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the Sintef research foundation and the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB).

The project forms part of the BAS5 programme.
