Well, maybe not ten, but … Practitioners of the quantitative risk framework Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) will already be familiar with the Threat Capability (TCAP) variable. I’ve historically been frustrated determining whether a threat-actor is in the upper 2% of the threat community, in the 85th percentile of the threat community continuum, or even some blend of such rating systems. Yet, even when one lands on a final TCAP rating, the FAIR framework is missing crucial threat-actor variables that should contribute to the final risk derivations, including actor motivation and attack complexity. Relatively recent research and resources, such as the MITRE ATT&CK framework, provide additional insight into many of today’s known, active threat-actor groups, and the techniques they use, that can be used to further define the TCAP variable.
