The Preventive Approach to Risks Related to Interdependent Infrastructures

Life Support Networks (LSNs) assure that society functions correctly through provision of essential resources such as telecommunications and energy--in other words, the correct functioning of society is guaranteed through the correct functioning of LSNs. New vulnerabilities have been revealed through the growing complexity of both LSNs and their interdependencies. Between-network hazards can truly be propagated through these interdependencies. Current risk management methods (often based on aiming at interdependency modeling, worst case scenario analysis, and/or probabilistic approaches) are hardly applicable to LSN and other complex and dynamic systems' concrete realities. Jointly with multiple partners, the risk and performance center has developed a new proactive risk management methods based on harmful LSN consequence prevention and anticipation to compensate for these gaps.
