ValueSec project is intended to support and enhance the decision making process with a toolset so that that security measures reflect the interests of all stakeholders. Decisions must be based on transparent criteria and a rigorous cost-benefit-analysis, incorporating quantitative and qualitative factors such as social, cultural, ethical and economic implications in the overall analysis.

The project aimed to develop the means to make more transparent and systematic assessments of the wide array of costs incurred by security decisions as well as the potential and expected benefits linked to such decisions. It will thus facilitate better and more effective decision making.
