Abstract : Historically, cyber-attacks targeting computer networks have sometimes favored the attacker over the defender, resulting in great loss of information or denial of service. This thesis investigates the possibility that short-term cyber-attacks on network supply chains may conceal more sinister plans to destroy thelong-term operational effectiveness for supplying goods during periods of critical needs. Using a life-cycle approach, quantifiable metrics were used to compare short-term risks with long-term risks in a network supply chain to establish the existence of black swan events.
