Social Safety and Security

Social Safety and Security

A safe and secure society is capable of maintaining its vital functions also when put under stress. It is a society where critical societal functions are rarely put out of play, and where accidents, natural hazards and malicious intended acts do not lead to grave consequences for life, health, environment or material values. It is a society where organizations and government is able to control the hazards that we are able to predict, and at the same time being able to deal with the scenarios which we failed to predict.
  • We conduct risk assessment related to critical systems and infrastructures
  • We develop knowledge related to the assessment and management of risks that emerge in the interdependencies between systems and infrastructures
  • We develop knowledge aimed at improving the coordination and collaboration between the different actors responsible for societal safety.
