Critical Infrastructure - Security Risk Assessment Tool

To achieve this goal, the study first provides a detailed analysis of the characteristics of the Critical Infrastructures, highlighting the typical problems of complex systems (non-linear propagation of effects, cascade effects, positive and negative feedback, emerging behaviors, etc. ).

The parameters of the risk analysis (assets, threats, vulnerabilities) that can affect the IC will then be identified, deepening these aspects with respect to the most interesting scenarios (for example SCADA systems, power grids, transport) and guidelines International.

The state of the art of existing solutions for Risk Management in the IC field will be studied, analyzing their advantages and limitations. Subsequently, a gap analysis will be conducted that will allow NIS to understand the difference between its own risk analysis methodology (as-is) and the desired one (to-be), following which it will be possible to evaluate the feasibility of making the identified changes. defining a rough proposal of the solution.
