The Nordic Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) invites abstracts to the 3rd conference which will be held at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, November 2-3, 2017.

The theme of the conference “Risk and Security” highlights the role risk plays in relation to security. Security concerns and related risk issues are today in the heart of organizations, governments and international institutions.  There are however, no simple ways to deal with these concerns and issues and conventional risk assessment methods are challenged by the need for new concepts and tools to properly handle security risks.
