Title: Human Factors in a Computable Cybersecurity Risk Model
Author(s): Sophie Williams, Damien Marriott
Reference: pp214-224
Keywords: Human factors, spear-phishing, computable risk model, semantics, cybersecurity
Abstract: Computable risk models are used for risk management in organisations to assess possible cybersecurity threats to the system and consider appropriate response options. These models might include humans, but usually do not contain information about how human factors have a role in information security. We describe the necessary aspects to consider when designing a framework for including human factors in a risk model, based on the example of a spear-phishing attack. Some key elements of this framework were implemented as a proof of concept using Chimera, a computable cybersecurity risk model.
