An increase in the use of information and communication techniques, the complex modern infrastructure and a closer connection between different systems and organizations have created a greater vulnerability with respect to physical security. While numerous conceptual models, metaphors and principles have been developed to manage safety risks, security can be considered as a relatively young field of science.
