MULTI-METHOD MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF THE CYBERSECURITY VULNERABILITY MANAGEMENT ECOSYSTEM

July 1, 2019

This paper presents modeling and analysis of two critical foundational processes of the cybersecurity vulnerability management ecosystem using a combination of system dynamics and agent-based modeling techniques. The preliminary result from this analysis is that misapplication of either of these foundational processes could contribute to the fragility and risk associated with the many national infrastructures and organizational missions that rely on the Internet.

Cyber Risk Appetite: Defining and Understanding Risk in the Modern Enterprise

whitePaper | January 16, 2020

In fact, cyber security is now increasingly reviewed by corporate boards of directors and often discussed with financial analysts who see cyber security risk as an imminent and paramount business risk. Because the consequences of cyber security failures can be damaging to business revenues and brand reputation, CEOs have lost their positions as a result of data breaches and inept preparation and planning.
