With an increasingly complex and interconnected world we need to reconsider our perception of risk as it applies to cyber threats. Traditional risk models rely heavily on probabilistic approaches, which demand stable distributions and almost complete knowledge of possible states. New advances in digital technologies, combining huge data, rapidly evolving automated algorithms and the prospect of a generational shift in network speed and capacity, pose serious challenges to traditional risk modelling.
As part of the Hermeneut project, the Digital Catapult has proposed a new approach, the Benefit Harm Index, which integrates ideas from economics and complexity science into a new approach to understanding dynamic and emergent threats. Now, Digital Catapult invites you to join Hermeneut’s next workshop.
