European Master and Certification Program
in Risk Engineering and Management

Develop your competences in vulnerability analysis and reduce the vulnerability of your enterprise!

In the framework of the EU FP7 project iNTeg-Risk "Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks", Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners have set up a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program with the emphasis on management and analysis of emerging risks related to new technologies. Herewith, we announce the forthcoming course

Vulnerability Analysis and Return on Prevention Analysis

May 6 - 10, 2013
Stuttgart, Germany

Lecturer: Stefan Kovacs

The course is open for students of the universities and employees of the companies participating in the project, as well as for the external participants.

Vulnerability Analysis is a prerequisite to a risk assessment. Coupled with return on prevention analysis it could serve as an essential step in risk management and future scenarios development, giving managers and risk specialists a powerful decision assisting tool. This course aims to build up competences regarding vulnerability analysis in industry based on the current best practice in EU, as well as to provide basic knowledge regarding Return on Prevention Vulnerability analysis. Return on Prevention assessment gives the efficiency of the money and resources invested. The course presents the latest methodologies and instruments and also the latest stage of art.

The course will provide the students with sufficient knowledge and skills that they should be able to do a vulnerability analysis and on its results a return on prevention analysis, showing the weak points (where the facility is vulnerable) and giving the spots where return on prevention could be maximized. Also, objectives should materialize in an individual project and also in the responses of a multiple answers test.

The course is designed to satisfy the needs of safety experts and practitioners, engineers and managers, especially risk managers. At the end of the course students are expected to:

  • have the necessary competences in order to perform vulnerability analysis at their enterprises
  • understand basics of Return on Prevention (RoP) concepts and its usage in risk management
  • form their competences in RoP assessment.
