How can safety and security be jointly assessed to resolve conflicts, and what role can bowtie analysis play to realise the vision of integrated safety and security? These were the topics discussed on 28 March 2018, at the ‘Integrated approach to safety and security’ event in London, hosted by TÜV Rheinland’s Risktec and CGE.

Bowtie Analysis Provides a Useful Approach to Integrating Safety and Security

While it was concluded that there is a long way to go for safety and security to be managed in an integrated way, bowtie analysis was able to provide a very useful approach to help achieve that goal. The particular focus on cybersecurity revealed that organisations should first recognise that the threat is very real and current, and that many sectors are simply not doing enough to assess their vulnerabilities and put in place robust protective systems and processes.
