ABSTRACT
This article describes an analysis of several representative cybersecurity economic models, where the authors seek to determine whether each model's underlying assumptions are realistic and useful. They find that many of the assumptions are the same across disparate models, and most assumptions are far from realistic. They recommend several changes so that the predictions from economic models can be more relevant and useful.
