Abstract

Public decision makers are faced with the great challenge of detecting and identifying future risks. This concerns especially the field of national security. Decision makers must be able to identify threats in order to react to them adequately and so reduce risks. For this reason, a general risk management support guideline for public decision makers is developed which focuses on national security. The objective of the framework is to identify future risks, to analyze, and to evaluate them, so that concrete actions can be set to tackle the threats. The risk management framework is based on the core of the ISO 31000 risk management norm and guides the decision maker stepwise through the complex process. Therefore, several potential techniques and tools are combined in order to gain an overall picture of several scenarios. A collaboration of subject matter experts of several disciplines constitutes an important part of the process.
