Abstract

Critical systems have very stringent requirements on both security and safety. Recent mishaps such as the missing MH370 aircraft and the sunk Korean Sewol ferry go to show that our technology in safety and security risk assessment still need a more integrated approach. Nuclear plant meltdown in the recent Fukushima accident is also a typical example of insufficient risk assessments. This work is a case study on how a unified security and safety risk assessment methodology may be applied to a High Pressure Core Flooder (HPCF) system in a nuclear power plant. Individual risk security or safety assessments may overlook the possible higher risk associated with such critical systems. The case study shows how the proposed method provides a more accurate risk assessment compared to individual assessments.
