Requirements for food fraud and food defense have been written into various Standards, such as IFS Food, BRCGS Food and FSSC 22000 Version 6.  Both of these topics deal with intentional adulteration, designed to either yield economic gain for the criminal or to cause harm to the consumer, contrary to HACCP, which is designed to control unintentional or accidental harm.  Various methods exist for performing vulnerability and threat assessments and they could be complicated to understand.  This workshop will provide an in-depth methodology to assist with vulnerability and threat assessments.
