Toward econometric models of the security risk from remote attacks

  title={Toward econometric models of the security risk from remote attacks},
  author={Stuart E. Schechter},
  journal={IEEE Security & Privacy},
Security risk models have successfully estimated the likelihood of attack for simple security threats such as burglary and auto theft. Before we can forecast the risks to computer systems, we must first learn to measure the strength of their security
