Security is a global concern, requiring efficient, randomized allocation and scheduling of limited security resources. To that end, we have used computational game theory to build decision aids for security agencies around the world. These decision aids are in use by agencies such as the US Coast Guard for protection of ports and ferry traffic, and the Federal Air Marshals Service and LAX police for protecting air traffic; our game-theoretic algorithms are also under evaluation for suppression of urban crime and for protection of wildlife and fisheries. I will overview my group's research in this growing area of security games.

I totally agree that safety in gaming is very important. Especially nowadays, when there are so many scammers. We all need to be careful. Therefore, I always use trusted services like Apple Pay. It has been tested for years and has never let me down. I was surprised at how versatile it is. It is unlikely that you also knew about it, so I think you should also read about it in the review I am a fan of online casinos and there it is an indispensable thing so as not to worry once again.
