RCP will be exhibiting in Booth #531 at the Expo. And, don’t miss this opportunity to meet RCP’s President, Bill Byrd, and attend his presentation on “Site-Specific Quantitative Pipeline Risk Analysis using Monte Carlo Methods” (Track 12). The paper was co-authored by Matthew Wylie, Chief Information Officer and General Counsel at RCP Inc. This paper will compare a site specific quantitative risk analysis using traditional “average” risk ranking methods to a more complex Monte Carlo analysis which uses a range of possibilities and consequences for each threat – each with their own probability. The comparison is based on the California “Guidance Protocol for School Site Pipeline Risk Analysis,” a quantitative risk analysis protocol which uses average probability and consequence values, and will extend it to explain how a more complex Monte Carlo analysis of those same risk factors can give a more comprehensive understanding of anticipated risks and consequences.
