Abstract:

This paper presents modeling and analysis of two critical foundational processes of the cybersecurity vulnerability management ecosystem using a combination of system dynamics and agent-based modeling techniques. The preliminary result from this analysis is that misapplication of either of these foundational processes could contribute to the fragility and risk associated with the many national infrastructures and organizational missions that rely on the Internet.
