Security Engineering Risk Analysis (SERA): Connecting Technology Risk To Mission Impact


Presented: April 10, 2020 11:00 am
Presented by: Dr. Carol Woody

The Security Engineering Risk Analysis (SERA) Method defines a systematic approach for evaluating cybersecurity risk in highly complex networked environments. The SERA Method uses a scenario-based approach to analyze how an attacker could leverage available attack vectors and technology vulnerabilities to compromise confidentiality, integrity, and availability of mission-critical data and impact operational mission success. SERA can be applied at any point in the lifecycle to construct cyber-risk scenarios that show how the technology within a system and its context including supply chains and trusted connections in a system-of-systems provides opportunities for attackers to disrupt mission execution. Analysis of the scenarios will determine what risks are critical and which controls are important to reduce mission impact.
