Physical Security in the Process Industry: Theory with Applications deals with physical security in the field of critical infrastructures where hazardous materials are a factor, along with the state-of-the-art thinking and modeling methods for enhancing physical security. The book offers approaches based on scientific insights, mainly addressing terrorist attacks. Moreover, the use of innovative techniques is explained, including Bayesian networks, game-theory and petri-networks. Dealing with economic parameters and constraints and calculating the costs and benefits of security measures are also included. The book will be of interest to security (and safety) scientists, security managers and the public at large.

  • Discusses how to achieve inherent physical security using a scientific approach
  • Explores how to take adequate add-on physical security measures
  • Covers risk assessment tools and applications for practical use in the industry
  • Demonstrates how to optimize security decisions using security models and approaches
  • Considers economic aspects of security decisions

Biografie (woord)

Genserik Reniers (1974) received his PhD in Applied Economic Sciences from the University of Antwerp, after completing a Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He lectures in general chemistry, organic chemistry, industrial processes, and technological risk management at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. He is also the Scientific Director of the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Safety and Security. At the Campus Brussels of the KULeuven in Belgium, Professor Reniers lectures in engineering risk management, advanced occupational health and safety management and chemical processes/unit operations. At the TUDelft in the Netherlands, he teaches risk analysis & risk management. His main research interests concern the collaboration and interaction between safety and security topics and socio-economic optimization within the chemical industry. He has extensive experience in leading research projects funded both by the Belgian government and the chemical industry. He is, amongst others, a Member of the Working Party of Loss Prevention (EFCE) and the Royal Flemish Society for Engineers, and serves as an Editor for the Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries and an Associate Editor for Safety Science. He received the Trevor Kletz Merit Award 2017 for outstanding contributions to the field of Process Safety.
