The advent of terrorism and ASIC’s
has focused the Board’s of many institutionsattention on security and risk management. The various legislative responses developedby the respective Federal, State and Local Governments of Australia have created a needfor extensive compliance requirements for all asset owners and managers.

Optec Critical Infrastructure Risk Management Centre® 
has recognized that thereare three critical elements to the risk management process.
The first
is the thoroughinvestigation required to fully identify hazards. The full recognition of hazards internal orexternal to a particular operation is essential to ensure the risk management outcome isnot flawed.
The second
essential element is the effective identification of vulnerabilities applying to aparticular location. Optec has been approved to use and adopt the Security VulnerabilityRisk Assessment Guide
process to achieve this. This is a program initiallydeveloped by the water industry in Victoria, which, with industry specific adaptation, is avery effective methodology for the determination of risk and vulnerability. This ensures thatrisk mitigation measures are applied where they will have the most effect in risk reduction.This process also provides for remedial action post event.
the presentation of the risk management plan in a format which is user friendly,informative and generic.
Optec Critical Infrastructure Risk Management Centre® 
iscurrently engaged through an end user needs analysis with a view to develop a suitableformat across many industries
