Abstract [en]

Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap (MSB) is a Swedish organization for civil contingencies and has developed the Radiokommunikation för Effektiv Ledning (RAKEL) for the synchronization and cooperation between authorities like police, fire department, SOS alarm, etc. This Thesis is dealing with a risk analysis having in concern both organization’s structure as well the infrastructure that RAKEL is based on. For that purpose a qualitative method is used which compares procedures and methods used with the most updated ones. Model for risk analysis that is used best is OCTAVE-S. Five critical assets (system documentation, TETRA Dispatching Work Station (DWS), Network Management Center (NMC), switching sites and 2nd line support) are identified from the infrastructure and during the research some more appeared on the surface (like jamming, IT-architecture, etc.). Protection and mitigation plans that are introduced is a mixture of technical solutions (like anti-jamming solutions, protocol for secured communication, etc.) and organizational improvements.
