This course develops a network theory of vulnerability analysis and risk assessment called “modelbased vulnerability analysis” that is used to extract the critical nodes from each sector, model the nodes’ vulnerabilities by representing them in the form of a fault-tree, and then applying fault and financial risk reduction techniques to derive the optimal strategy for protection of each sector. At the completion of this course, students will be able to apply the model-based vulnerability technique to any critical infrastructure within their multi jurisdictional region.
