Vulnerability Assessment of Physical Protection Systems
Author: Mary Lynn Garcia, CPP
Vulnerability Assessment of Physical Protection Systems guides the reader through performing an effective vulnerability assessment (VA) from the start of planning through final analysis, including the out brief to senior management. Relying on principles introduced in the best-selling Design and Evaluation of Physical Protection Systems, this practical text addresses the full spectrum of the VA, including negotiating tasks with the customer, project management and planning, team membership, step-by-step details for performing the VA, data collection and analysis, and important notes on how to use the VA to suggest design improvements and general multiple design options.
The author provides proven techniques employed by Sandia National Laboratories during the last 30 years for a wide spectrum of customers, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Department of State (DOS), dam and water systems, prisons, and chemical companies. Several new tools are introduced to help readers organize and use the information garnered by the VA at their sites to reduce risk to an acceptable level at an affordable cost and with the least operational impact.
