Description

Virtually all modern organizations have embedded information systems and networking technologies into their core processes as a means to increase operational efficiency, improve decision making quality, reduce delays, and/or maximize profit. Unfortunately, this dependence can place the organization’s mission at risk when an information incident (e.g., the loss or degradation of the confidentiality, integrity, availability, non-repudiation, or authenticity of a critical information resource or flow) occurs. This research focuses on developing solutions to provide decision makers with timely notification and relevant impact assessment, in terms of mission objectives, following an information incident.
