  • Energy Security

    Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the ...

  • Taxonomy of SCADA systems security testbeds

    Considerable research has focused on developing simulation environments to study the effects of cyber–attacks on supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems although a methodology to develop a SCADA security testbed is not yet available. This paper attempts to address the issue by presenting a reference model taken from the literature and classifying specific contributions on the ...

  • Water Distribution System Security Monitoring

    A water security instrument essentially needs to be able to detect potential contaminants in drinking water. Since a significant number of potential chemical contaminants are organic in nature, a water security monitoring instrument that can detect organic matter in water is perfect for this application. Real Tech has developed an instrument specifically designed for water security ...

  • Pathogen security: the illusion of security in foreign policy and biodefence

    'Pathogen security' (sometimes called 'biosecurity') is too often seen as the primary strategy to combat bioterrorism. Asserting that materials, technologies and expertise for bioterrorism are available worldwide and that terrorist groups are increasingly able to obtain and disseminate infectious disease pathogens, advocates contend that pathogen security systems and practices are central to ...

  • Designing and evaluating layered security

    Following systems engineering principles, we introduce analytic means to qualitatively judge and quantitatively assess layering of security controls with the aim of optimising risk reduction. The emphasis is on evaluating security controls in real world systems, where complications such as uncertainty, scale, multiple threats, multiple events, and multiple pathways from threat to event to ...

  • Redefining Security for the 21st Century

    By Lester R. Brown One of our legacies from the last century, which was dominated by two world wars and the cold war, is a sense of security that is defined almost exclusively in military terms. It so dominates Washington thinking that the U.S. foreign affairs budget of $701 billion in 2009 consisted of $661 billion for military purposes and $40 billion for foreign assistance and diplomatic ...
