New paper on risk estimation factors

The Computers & Security journal, Elsevier, published online, recently, our paper “Incorporating Attacker Capabilities in Risk Estimation and Mitigation“. We propose in this paper the use of attacker capabilities in estimating the risk of threats. Attacker capabilities are the abilities to access system resources that allow to attack the system. We argue that the proposed factor allows the experts to have close risk estimates, which would increase the confidence in risk assessment.
