Tapestry: Assessing Integrated Risk Intelligently

20 Nov 2019, 13:20 - 14:10

Track 1: Emerging security tools & techniques

This talk will introduce and demonstrate a new approach for categorizing and measuring integrated risk in complex organizations. Based on rigorous research conducted at the University of Maryland, we weave together models that connect network maps with mission and business functions and run attack scenarios to estimate consequence.  This approach allows for a more thorough understanding of the broad array of consequences threat actors can engineer and estimates the integrated risks across mission sets.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a new quantitative method for assessing risk to specific mission and business functions in complex organizations.
  • Be exposed to a new quantitative index, graph models of representative networks, and new visualization techniques for modelling risk.
  • Classify the variety of cyber attacks in a new taxonomy.
  • Be exposed to a new method for visualizing integrated risk for complex organizations and critical infrastructure.
