A new approach to protect soft-targets from terrorist attacks

Abstract: This paper presents a method to evaluate hazard level of soft-targets spaces based on their susceptibility toterrorist acts. This contribution illustrates a mixed approach (qualitative-quantitative) to assess an unknownprobability of situations which may well put the lives of citizens in serious danger. A case study is conducted on abuilding adapted from one of the University of Cantabria campus in case of an Improvised Explosive Device(IED) delivered by a terrorist. The present study shows how the method can provide valuable information todecision makers based on quantitative results for use in risk management. Potential applications and opportu-nities of this approach are discussed in detail.
