In this publication, Veronique de Rugy presents a case example of how government can link strategic risk management to resource allocation. Dr. de Rugy uses port security as an example of how strategic risk management can be used to analyze threats to the nation, develop scenarios, pose key questions, and develop resource allocation options. To illustrate the potential of strategic risk management, she presents three resource allocation options as to how the federal government might reallocate its present resources to more cost-effectively respond to security threats to the nation based on risk analysis.
