Wording optimization tasks on risk management by simulation in the CoC QUASAR

Nedko Dimitrov


The article reveals the possibility of solving optimization tasks for security risk management in a specific social system. The application of modern technological solutions to support the assessments contributes to the assessment objectification and the scenarios based methods application. The modeling of security processes and their reproduction, including repeatedly in a simulation environment can be used to solve optimization tasks to ensure security. The optimization task for security risk management has been formulated as methodology for solving the problems in the laboratories of work package "Risk Management" of the Center for Competence QUASAR.
