Security Decision-Making among Interdependent Organizations

  title={Security Decision-Making among Interdependent Organizations},
  author={Reiko Ann Miura-Ko and Benjamin Yolken and John Mitchell and Nicholas Bambos},
  journal={2008 21st IEEE Computer Security Foundations Symposium},
In various settings, such as when customers use the same passwords at several independent web sites, security decisions by one organization may have a significant impact on the security of another. We develop a model for security decision-making in such settings, using a variation of linear influence networks. The linear influence model uses a matrix to represent linear dependence between security investment at one organization and resulting security at another, and utility functions to measure… CONTINUE READING
