Current systems are vulnerable due to poor cyber security behaviors.

The approach includes three major activities 1 quantitative capturing of heuristics and biases in cyber security. 2 quantifying cyber risks, premiums, and selecting control measures to reduce premiums. 3 Transition to practice, will test, evaluate and demonstrate the efficacy of proposed models and transition results to operational environments using real world databases and working with live partners who eventually will be adopting the models produced.
