The contribution of this thesis is a modeling framework and a theory to support cyber security vulnerability assessments. Our project aims to investigate a theoretical framework for trustworthy cyber sensing. Corpus ID: 7890100. Cyber terrorism is not only a tool for propaganda of traditional terrorism, but also a logic embedded in the cyber space. It has a particular focus on SCADA systems. “Systems thinking is a discipline for seeing wholes. FRAMEWORK, THEORETICAL DISCUSSIONS AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS1 Mahir TERZİ2 Abstract Technology generates a new kind of terrorism which is called as cyber terrorism. Cyber terrorism needs more attention for the security of A framework and theory for cyber security assessments @inproceedings{Sommestad2012AFA, title={A framework and theory for cyber security assessments}, author={T. Sommestad}, year={2012} } That said, cyber security does not fully mirror the economic sector either: its securitizing potential exceeds that of the economic sector as strictly defined [15] and this in turn allows – or is an indication of – a much stronger link to national military security. Establish the rationale for a theoretical foundation for an approach to cyber security that emphasises the impact of cyber-attacks on society, including on the health, energy, transport and … Furthermore, Cybersafety takes a top-down approach. It has a particular focus on SCADA systems. To apply Cybersafety, cyber security needs to be viewed holistically from the lens of systems thinking. The applicability of the theoretical framework is then shown through a case-study of what has been labeled the first war in cyber space against Estonian public and commercial institutions in 2007. The contribution of the current paper is a mapping of the constructs found in cybersecurity behaviour, to the Theoretical Domain Framework. Follow-ing is a … The paper studies the key concepts and terms of cyber security and presents the physical world and the cyber world framework. The thesis is a composite of six papers. With the perspective of treating cyberspace are compromised computers, it is important to be aware of the (dynamic) cyber security-related situation, which is however challenging because cyberspace is an extremely large-scale complex system. The contribution of this thesis is a modeling framework and a theory to support cyber security vulnerability assessments. The proposed, or similar, framework for cyber-security awareness and education for SA will, if imple-mented and used by the SA government, contribute to creating the envisaged cyber-secure culture in SA amongst its citizens and users of the Internet. This has been achieved by a systematic literature survey. Paper A describes a template stating how probabilistic relational models can be used to connect The paper refers to a system model of a society and uses that model to analyze the results of two limited media surveys about cyber-related newspaper articles. It is a framework for seeing interrelationships rather than things, for seeing patterns of change rather than static 'snapshots'.” [6]. The significance of the study is the identification and of the main behavioural constructs used in the cybersecurity domain. Without a theoretical framework, Cyber Security is ultimately hindered in its ability to describe, provide an overall and complete ‘big picture’ understanding of, and thus, how best to design and implement Cyber Security Best Practices.
