Decisions under risk & uncertainty

Course

Description

From financial ventures to global warming to information security, concepts of risk are ubiquitous - how should we understand these concepts? In this course, looking at cases such as the Fukushima Daiichi disaster and certificate authority failures, we explain and apply concepts of risk and security. The emphasis is on developing scientifically well-grounded arguments and management strategies and exploring different perspectives on the topic.
