    The MATTI risk assessment model is being created to monitor changes in the security environment. It will support regional security planning and preparedness for disruptions and emergencies. Regional indicators will be used in monitoring that will help identify the root causes of security risks and the phenomena that signal heightened risk levels. The indicators will also be used to anticipate different disruptions and emergencies. Such indicators include, among other things, demographic conditions, wellness indicators, social inclusion and equality as well as security barometers. The project is being implemented in concert with the authorities, organisations and the business community and is financed by the Prime Minister’s Office.
