OPBUS (OPtimization BUsiness process Security) is a framework composed of different tools for automated risk management in business processes. OPBUS is ready to use solvers for the automated analyses in business processes.
OPBUS intends to integrate risk management into the Business Process Management (BPM) based on a Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) approach. The integration of BPM and risk management is aligned to the strategic objectives of ”Integration of RM/RA with Operation Processes”; and "1.4 Secure, dependable and trusted infrastructures” defined by the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and European Commission 7th Framwork Programme (7FP) in the ICT Trust and Security.
OPBUS-RAT tool strives the automatic risk assessment of business process models in order to determine which activities are non-conformance with regard to established risk levels.
