DAISY Project main objectives

The main objective of the DAISY project is to provide CI Security Managers and Airport Manager with an instrument which will help in defining the risk their infrastructures are subject to, in order to assess the vulnerabilities and identify/implement the most appropriate integrated non-invasive inspection countermeasures.

Moreover, the most valuable target of this project is to provide the end-users with an instrument that will help them in evaluating which non-invasive inspection systems are the most effective.

The definition of inspection methodologies and security trends will be the base for the definition of the risk analysis, in order to minimize, the probability and impact of the potential threats to airport terminal infrastructures.

The DAISY project aims at developing a support tool for assessing the risk which airports are subject to, and to evaluate the cost/effectiveness ratio deriving from the selection and implementation of a set of countermeasures.

DAISY basic concepts

The basic concepts of DAISY are summarized in the following

Risk formulations

Common widely accepted Risk formulations based on the probability of occurrence of malicious threats and the impact that the threats may have on selected assets

Cost benefit

Cost benefit analysis criteria keeping into account the technology evolution trends and the impact of delays on the general economy

DAISY project outputs

The DAISY project will generate a tool that will support Critical Infrastructure security managers and decision makers in

Security measures

Reaching a common understanding of the impact of security measures on the overall cost of the transport system.

Software tool

Assessing the risk airports and Critical Infrastructures are subjected to, through the development of a novel software tool.
