Risk and Interdependencies in Critical Infrastructures

A Guideline for Analysis

Editors: Hokstad, Per, Utne, Ingrid B., Vatn, Jørn (Eds.)

  • Provides methods for analysng risks and interdependencies of critical infrastructures, such as water supply/sewage, elctricity, ICT and railway transportation
  • Adapts various risk and vulnerability analysis techniques to each of these infrastructures
  • Identifies useful risk reducing measures by enhancing the understanding on how hazards and threats can propagate throughout the system and also affect other infrastructures

About this book

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. 

About the authors

Per Hokstad is senior research scientist at SINTEF Safety Research, and has thorough experience in research and projects on reliability and risk analyses; e.g. in transportation, oil/gas and water supply. Until 1985 he was Assistant/Associate Professor at NTH in probability, statistics and reliability, and he was also Adjunct Professor in risk at NTNU 1990-2000.

Ingrid B. Utne is a Professor of marine operation and maintenance at Department of Marine Technology, NTNU. She has a PhD in safety and reliability, and she has worked on several research and industrial projects on risk analysis and maintenance management in shipping, oil/gas, and fisheries and aquaculture.

Jørn Vatn is a Professor in maintenance optimization at Department of Production and Quality Engineering, NTNU. He covers the field of risk analysis, reliability analysis and maintenance optimization. Application areas are transportation, offshore oil & gas, offshore wind energy and utility services.
