Risk Prevention

Risk Prevention

We understand risk as the product of the probability of occurrence of an undesirable - because disruptive or harmful - event and the effects that result from it.

In this way, we consciously distinguish risk from danger. A simple example: a crocodile can be dangerous - but in a zoo behind bars, the animal poses no risk.

In contrast to events under uncertainty (Emergency Management) we want to make the occurrence of a risk as calculable as possible in the long term.

The latent threatIn the past, risk prevention was considered a purely obligatory exercise for critical infrastructure facilities such as nuclear power plants or for producers of particularly hazardous substances (e.g. chlorine electrolysis plants in the chemical industry). But also for individual areas with particularly high vulnerability such as security checks in air traffic. Appropriate technical and organizational solutions and procedures were developed and rehearsed.

Events such as terrorist attacks, cyber attacks, but also pandemics, which we are currently confronted with, make us aware of the fact that we are in a constantly and rapidly changing world in which

  • Locally occurring (single) events can have a massive impact on any organization, authority, municipality, corporation, down to every one-man business and individual all over the world in a very short time.

    Example: A "lung disease at a local weekly market in Wuhan" develops into a worldwide pandemic.

  • Technical advances can be used not only for good but also for harm.

    Example: In the past, if I wanted to disrupt a business/facility, I had to climb over the fence in "analog" to plant a bomb; today, a computer virus is enough.

We are firmly convinced that it is important to address risk prevention at all levels, not only at present but also in the long term.

We are now stepping up to transfer proven and tested methods to a different, "new" application world with risk-unexperienced people and companies.

Risk Prevention

Technical measures
Organizational measures
