Methods of Analysis

  • Wolfgang Kröger
  • Enrico Zio


Challenges to methods for vulnerability analysis have been distillated and approaches, framed into categories, have been explained briefly in the previous chapters. It has also been stated that no all-encompassing method exists but rather an interplay of methods is necessary to provide trustworthy information about vulnerabilities within and among critical infrastructures (CIs). Starting with the evaluation of statistical data this chapter introduces methods in detail which are regarded as most promising to deal with the complex behavior of these systems within screening and, in particular, in depth analysis.
