Critical Infrastructure in Homeland Security offers a unique scientific approach to the new field of critical infrastructure protection.
- Uses network theory, optimization theory, and simulation software to analyze and understand how infrastructure sectors evolve, where they are vulnerable, and how they can best be protected
- Demonstrates that infrastructure sectors as diverse as water, power, energy, telecommunications, and the Internet have remarkably similar structures
- Leads to a rigorous approach to vulnerability analysis in all of these sectors. The analyst can then decide the best way to allocate limited funds to minimize risk, regardless of industry sector
- Vulnerability Analysis.
- Risk Analysis.
