Examples of outcomes include data disclosure, data modification, insertion of false data, destruction of data, and interruption of access to data. The data model is used to identify the immediate consequence of a threat. 3 Views Used to Assemble an Operational System Model A threat ends with a description of its direct consequence or outcome. However, a security risk analysis must also account for indirect consequences triggered by the occurrence of a threat. The indirect consequences are used to (1) measure the impact of a security risk and (2) establish a risk’s priority for decision makers.
