Development of a Fuzzy Cognitive Model for Automating the Assessment of Information Security Risks in Automated Systems

In modern conditions, the relevance of the problem of assessing the information security risks for automated systems is increasing. Risk assessment is defined as a complex multi-stage task. Risk assessment requires prompt decision-making for effective information protection. To solve this problem, a method for automating risk assessment based on fuzzy cognitive maps is proposed. A fuzzy cognitive map is a model that can be represented as a directed graph in which concepts and connections between them have own weights. The automation process allows evaluate complex relationships between factors and threats, providing a more comprehensive risk assessment. The application of fuzzy cognitive maps proved to be an effective tool for automation, promptness, and quality in risk assessment.
