Abstract

Security management is an important part of the overall management of an organization. It aims to protect the health and life of persons, organization property and the environment itself. Achieving this goal, which represents achieving the required level of both security and safety, is undoubtedly dependent on the activities performed by security and safety managers. One of the basic processes affecting the security and safety level in the given organization is a risk assessment process. Based on the results of this process, particular measures are implemented to either avert or reduce the security and safety risks. The KARS method presented in this article is one of the methods applicable to the risk assessment process. The added value over other methods used in practice is that the assessment takes into account the correlation of the assessed risks. The case study presents the application of the KARS for evaluating risks magnitude within a real reference object.
