There could be a difference regarding the size of the probabilities were safety incidents in many cases have higher probabilities than security incidents. This is discussed by Kunreuther in an article on risk analysis in an uncertain world where he draws some conclusions from terrorist attacks in USA.

The biggest is that the security "hazard" as an agenda and the safety hazard doesn't even have a mind. But how does this affect risk assessment?...
I'll have to get back to you about that, this year or mabey next...
It turns out that Dstl in UK is barking up the same tree as me: the survivability risk assessment tree (they do it for military helicopters). Apparently for the same reasons (to find right security/survivability solutions for a specific platform), but refreshingly with some other tools and interesting ideas about the output.
These kinds of multi national workshops are proof of a very intense cooperation between European countries. Swedes are sometimes accused of being to USA focused which probably also goes for some other European countries. We need these kinds of cooperation in Europe, especially as so much of the academic cred is dictated by the guys on the other side of the Atlantic. This to make sure that we will have influential future.
P.S. But the balance between being intimate enough for fruitful cooperation and open enough for making sure to get enough critique is important and hard to get right, especially if you are dealing with defence or security.

At each event I get good constructive critique, some laughs, the possibility to see my own work with a new perspective, often a good cup of coffee and sometimes even a nice bowl of ice cream.
I’m generally content with my situation, colleagues and network, but in regards to my research I must say that dealing with a topic that get people’s attention is good for me and my research and gets me out of my comfort zone.
