USA Nuclear has released a White Paper detailing how the nuclear industry has utilized Security Risk Assessment (SRA) tools to optimize security configurations and costs. Using tools like AVERT Physical Security allow organizations to supplement Subject Matter Expert’s opinions with a vast amount of quantitative data. This data is produced by running thousands of threat simulations against various permutations of a site’s security and response configurations. The resulting reports provide cost-benefit analyses and the ROI justifications for making changes or procurements. By analyzing the most efficient ways to defend facilities against their most prominent threats, SRA tools help design and optimize security and response configurations. This process ensures organizations are prepared for any threats and provides tighter security at less costs.
