VLDs are often prepared in advance for use as heuristics to guide teams in making assessments in large or numerous facilities to enhance comparability. 3. , a locked door may be breached or not. The evaluation team estimates the probability of each outcome. 0). The sum of the probabilities of all branches on which the attack succeeds is the vulnerability estimate. 4. Hybrids of these – often used by more sophisticated assessment teams. Direct elicitation often seems to be easier and less time-consuming, but the time to reason through each threat/asset pair can lead to long discussions and thus, it is difficult to maintain logical consistency across a number of such judgments.
