Vicki Bier Webinar - Game Theoretic and Reliability Methods for Counterterrorism and Security

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The routine application of reliability and risk analysis by itself is not adequate in the security domain. Protecting against intentional attacks is fundamentally different from protecting against accidents or acts of nature. In particular, an intelligent and adaptable adversary may adopt a different offensive strategy to circumvent or disable protective security measures. Game theory provides a way of taking this into account. Thus, security and counter-terrorism can benefit from a combination of reliability analysis and game theory.
