ABSTRACT

Extensions of the Gordon-Loeb [1] and the Gordon-Loeb-Lucyshyn-Zhou [2] models are presented based on mathematical equivalency with a generalized homeland security model. The extensions include limitations on changes in the probability of attack, simultaneous effects on probability and loss, diversion of attack, and shared non-information defenses. Legal cases are then investigated to assess approximate magnitudes of external effects and the extent they are internalized by the legal system.
