Iterative Analysis of Competing Hypotheses to Overcome Cognitive Biases in Cyber Decision-Making

This paper aims at improving the incident-response process by studying how cognitive biases such as the base rate fallacy, confirmation, and hindsight can affect decision-making in the cyber realm. This paper argues that cognitive biases negatively influence the performance of cyber incident response, as they have been shown to affect intelligence analysis.
