Abstract / Introduction
The advancement of Internet and digital systems is making it progressively more complicated to understand cyber-attacks. Corporate, public and defense organizations are all affected by them, so far many lack essential technical background to make right decisions in dealing with them. On the other hand, cyber-security analysts have good understanding about the technical aspect of cyber-attacks, however many don’t understand the non-technical consequences of decisions made from their perspective alone. While making a decision about cyber attack both contextual and technical consideration must be taken into account. Excess of cyber-attack models exist today that to some degree aid understanding of attacks. However mostly centered on delivering insight from particular perspective i.e. either understanding of human-centric factors or technical details. The approaches adopted do not high light how a discussion between expertdomain people of diverse backgrounds be conducted to set up a basic situational awareness understanding, to make collective decisions. The project will be based on existing research in this area; where the student will investigate on how to enable a collective approach to understand and discuss about cyber-attacks.
