13. Who Touched my Mission: Towards Probabilistic Mission Impact Assessment
Topic: Information Technology
Published: 10/12/2015
Authors: Xiaoyan Sun, Anoop Singhal, Peng Liu
Abstract: Cyber attacks inevitably generate impacts towards relevant missions. However, concrete methods to accurately evaluate such impacts are rare. In this paper, we propose a probabilistic approach based on Bayesian networks for quantitative mission impact ...
