Safety and security need to run through the same planning, since security breaches can adversely affect safety. “My point is that many things that apply to safety also increase security and vice-versa,” said Chabroux. “Safety standards have formal methods to verify things. Not so much for security. However, many of these methods do apply to security. So by being judicious, one can increase security and safety at the same time.”
