A Taxonomy of Operational Cyber Security Risks

The Software Engineering Institute has published version two of its ‘A Taxonomy of Operational Cyber Security Risks’ report. This updates a document first published in 2010, presenting a taxonomy of operational cyber security risks.

A Taxonomy of Operational Cyber Security Risks attempts to identify and organize the sources of operational cyber security risk into four classes:

(1) Actions of people,
(2) Systems and technology failures,
(3) Failed internal processes, and
(4) External events.

It discusses the harmonization of the taxonomy with other risk and security activities, particularly those described by the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publications, and the CERT Operationally Critical Threat, Asset, and Vulnerability Evaluation (OCTAVE®) method.
