  • Sources of risks

  • Security and PSE

  • Contributions

  • Concluding remarks


Preliminary comment

Preliminary Comment

Even a cultural activity can generate global disaster.


Introduction

Introduction

  • Security is a global issue

  • Global solution is not available

  • Highly interdisciplinary, enormous literature

  • Process systems engineering (PSE)

  • Structure decomposition

  • Security from engineering perspective

  • Cooperation between experts of specific areas

  • „Think globally, act locally”


Recent disasters

Recent disasters

  • Breakdown of Internet in Hungary (April 30, 2012)

  • 77 million user’s data stolen from Sony PlayStation Network (2011)

  • Fukushimanuclear power stationcatastrophe (2011)

  • Pakistan knocked YouTube offline for two hours (2008)

  • LA Airport 17 thousand flights grounded (2007)

  • Power grid breakdown, NY (2003)

  • Düsseldorf Airport fire (1996)

  • Ariane 5 failure (1996)


Potential risks

Potential risks

  • Aircrafts are on the internet (disaster without explosives)

  • Power grid long-term breakdown

  • Cars and trucks can be directed and controlled through internet

  • Chemical plant disaster

  • Loss of strategic database


Types of risks

Types of risks

  • Cultural

  • Technical

  • Helth

  • Internet

  • Environment

  • Military

  • Political

  • Comment: any injury or loss in an area can affect another areas, i.e., security is considered to be multidimensional


  • Definitions

    Definitions

    • Security: the state of being free from danger or threat (Oxford Dictionary)

    • Security is the process or means, physical or human, of delaying, preventing, and otherwise protecting against external or internal, defects, dangers, loss, criminals, and other individuals or actions that threaten, hinder or destroy an organization’s “steady state,” and deprive it of its intended purpose for being

    • Security and safety will be considered together in this presentation

    • Focus is on the engineering aspects of security and safety


    General goals

    General goals

    • Minimize the risk of failure (crisis, catastrophe)

    • Minimize the loss of failure (crisis or catastrophe)

    • Minimize the cost of safety


    Sources of risks

    Sources of risks

    • Natural and human activities are the sources of risks and threats

    • Types of activities:

      • transformation (e.g., data base management, production of gasoline from crude oil, earth-quake)

      • flow (crude oil in a pipe line, electricity on the network, information on the internet, cunami in the ocean)


    Local structures for global security

    • Both transformations and flows are subject to

      • faulty,

      • unwanted or

      • unexpected

        operations primarily because of design, maintenance, and operations problems.

  • Possible way of reducing the risks is to assure the quality of the activities

  • In practice, it is impossible, must not consider

  • Activities are interconnected and interdependent, therefore, risks are global


  • Risk is exploding

    Risk is exploding

    • Complexity increasing rapidly (introducing new types of services among the available activities)

    • Unnecessary activities (refrigerator on the internet)

    • Lack of quality control (speed is preferred to quality)

    • Increasing gap between the available tools (mathematical or technical)and the complexity of the security issue


    Contradiction

    Contradiction?

    • Security is global, cannot be solved locally

    • Global solution is needed

    • The solution should be systematic based on mathematical model (instead of intuitive)

    • Global mathematical model is not solvable

    • Solution:

      • Back to the basics (G. Polya)

      • Consider process systems engineering (PSE)


    Security and pse

    Security and PSE

    • PSE: Process Systems Engineering

    • Security from PSE perspectives

    • Initialized by the chemical industry of the 1970’s

    • Motivated by the competition (energy crisis), safety, etc.

    • Fundamental tool: global problem is solved as a sequence of smaller subproblems

    • Basis of the decomposition: structure of the system

    • Illustrative examples:

      • Systematic vs. intuitive solution

      • Structure is crutial

      • Importance of the mathematical model

    W hy structure is crutial

    Why structure is crutial?

    “The selection of the structure can typically reduce energy consumption by 50% and net-present cost by 35%” (Siirola, 1996)

    Importance of the mathematical model

    Axioms of combinatorially feasible structures

    Axioms of combinatorially feasible structures

    For PNS problem (P,R,O) a P-graph (m,o) satisfying the following five axioms is a combinatorially feasible network.

    (S1)P m

    (S2)xm, d-(x)=0 iff xR

    (S3)oO

    (S4)y0o  path [y0, yn] where ynP

    (S5) xm, (,)o such that x()

    Reduction of the search space

    The five axioms reduce the

    34 billion combinations of the operating units to

    3,465 combinatorially feasible structures

    for the industrial process synthesis problem of 35 op. units.

    The optimal solution is included in the set of 3465 feasible structures.


    Reduction of the search space

    Pse in practice

    PSE in practice

    • Example: no chemical process is develobed before it is simulated and analysed by a computer simulation program since 1980s

    • Even a chemical process is too complex to describe its behaviour by an overall mathematical model. It is decomposed:
