Dear colleagues,


It is a pleasure to announce that a new scientific paper has been published on the CBRN special, that is one of the 3 the special issue of SICC Series - CBRNe Conference 2020 published on the International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering (Guest editors of the special issue: Dr. Andrea Malizia, Dr. Marco D'Arienzo and Dr. Parag Chatterjee).

This work is the result of a research activity started in 2012 to deploy a method for risk assessment to be applied by the Italian Civil Protection and Civil Defence to protect critical infrastructures. The here presented Multi-Risk Assessment Method (MRAM), illustrates the complete approach, provided by this research activity, suitable to estimate both impact and risk in qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative fashion for catastrophic or calamitous events, including terrorist non-conventional CBRNe attacks.

In the paper a vulnerability reduction assessment methodology is also hinted with an analysis of the relation of MRAM with the USA RAMCAP approach adopted by Department of Homeland Security.

The MRAM provides a method for risk assessment, and was also recently implemented in forecasting software tools by some Italian local administrations.
