MERIT - A fraMEwoRk to Model and IncenTivise Cyber Security Investment Decisions

Funded by the National Cyber Security Centre in collaboration with the Research Institute in Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RISCS) under the call: Economics and Incentives (Apr 2020 - March 21)

Role: PI.

MERIT is addressing the complete cyber security management lifecycle, including asset pricing, threat-based risk assessment and optimal risk control constrained by a financial budget. The value of MERIT to practitioners is to increase the effectiveness of cyber security budget spending as decided by Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and boards of directors. This effectiveness refers to both time to make a decision as well as financial savings.
