Abstract: Advances in cyber situational awareness technology lead to the creation of increasingly complex tools. Human analysts face challenges finding relevant information in large, complex data sets, when exploring data to discover patterns and insights. To be effective in identifying and defeating future cyber-attacks, cyber analysts require novel tools and models that can fill the gap between cyber data and situation comprehension. The research presented here is designed to develop a system that will warn a cyber analyst of file format endangerment that could impact cyber situational awareness. The expert system statistically determines an institutional risk profile based on collected expert knowledge in the form of risk profiles calculated by means of risk factors. The institutional risk profile indicates risks that could endanger digital content employed in analysis of cyber situational awareness. Based on the institutional risk profile, a cyber analyst can implement measures for stabilis ing and securing situational awareness. Each institution may have multiple risk profile definitions dependent on network, critical infrastructure, and the role of the cyber analyst. Another contribution relates to the provided support for visualisation and analysis of risk factors for individual dimensions. To facilitate decision-making, the aggregated information about the risk factors is presented as a multidimensional vector. (More)
