Incremental acquisition of values to deal with cybersecurity ethical dilemmas

Abstract

Cybersecurity is a growing concern for organisations. Decision-making concerning responses to threats will involve making choices from a number of possible options. The choice made will often depend on the values held by the organisation and/or the individual/s making the decisions. To address the issue of how to capture ethical dilemmas and the values associated with the choices they raise, we propose the use of the Ripple Down Rules (RDR) incremental knowledge acquisition method. We provide an example of how the RDR knowledge can be acquired in the context of a value tree and then translated into a goal-plan tree that can be used by a BDI agent towards supporting the creation of ethical dilemmas that could be used for what-if analysis or training. We also discuss the AORTA framework can be extended with values to allow the BDI cognitive agent to take into consideration organisational norms and policies in its decision-making.
