Risk and Interdependencies in Critical Infrastructures: A Guideline for Analysis (Springer Series in Reliability Engineering)

Buy

Today’s society is completely dependent on critical networks such as  water supply, sewage, electricity, ICT and transportation. Risk and vulnerability analyses are needed to grasp the impact of threats and hazards. However, these become quite complex as there are strong interdependencies both within and between infrastructure systems. Risk and Interdependencies in Critical Infrastructures: A  guideline for analysis provides methods for analyzing risks and interdependencies of critical infrastructures.

 A number of analysis approaches are described and are adapted to each of these infrastructures. Various approaches are also revised, and all are supported by several examples and illustrations. Particular emphasis is given to the analysis of various interdependencies that often exist between the infrastructures.

 Risk and Interdependencies in Critical Infrastructures: A  guideline for analysis provides a good tool to identify the hazards that are threatening your infrastructures, and will enhance the understanding on how these threats can propagate throughout the system and also affect other infrastructures, thereby identifying useful risk reducing measures. It is essential reading  for municipalities and infrastructure owners  that are obliged to know about and prepare for the risks and vulnerabilities of the critical infrastructures for which they are responsible.

Human Recognition at a Distance in Video (Advances in Pattern Recognition)
Human Recognition at a Distance in Video (Advances in Pattern Recognition)

Most biometric systems employed for human recognition require physical contact with, or close proximity to, a cooperative subject. Far more challenging is the ability to reliably recognize individuals at a distance, when viewed from an arbitrary angle under real-world environmental conditions. Gait and face data are the two biometrics that...

Algebraic Geometry in Coding Theory and Cryptography
Algebraic Geometry in Coding Theory and Cryptography

Algebraic geometry has found fascinating applications to coding theory and cryptography in the last few decades. This book aims to provide the necessary theoretical background for reading the contemporary literature on these applications. An aspect that we emphasize, as it is very useful for the applications, is the interplay between...

Thinking Objects: Contemporary Approaches to Product Design
Thinking Objects: Contemporary Approaches to Product Design
Thinking Objects: Contemporary Approaches to Product Design explores the many approaches designers take to their work, deconstructing the design process. How do objects “communicate” to us? This book reveals how designers can learn to read the signals an object sends, interpret meaning, and discover historical context, and...
