ValueSec Project

General information of the project

There is today a gradual shift to the adoption of the most cost-efficient solutions and advanced technologies, which allow governments and other public authorities to achieve more benefits for less expenditure, but this emphasis on cost-benefit analysis will increase in the future. Even though the impact of e.g. counter-terrorism measures on society is very significant, current assessment methods have failed to model the social, political and ethical costs of e.g. anti-terror measures and integrate them into standard assessments. This project will work exactly in the area of very often conflicting interests between the public decision maker, the technology providers, and the impact on citizens.

The VALUESEC project aims at correcting this weakness by providing public authorities with a decision support tool-set to analyze different aspects decision process and make decisions based on sound economic analysis.

    This deliverable is an overview of all screened theories, methods and tools (TMTs) relevant to the ValueSec project. The screening process was guided by Deliverable 3.1, the Assessment Framework. A catalogue of 30 TMTs is the output of this screening process. The full catalogue of described and evaluated TMTs is available in Deliverable D3.2.
