Risk Management and Insurance Review, 2018, vol. 21, issue 3, 435-452

Abstract: Cyber threats are an emerging risk posing a range of challenges to organizations of all sizes. Corporate risk managers need to understand that cyber risk management must not be a silo in the IT department. Cyber threats are the result of intelligent adaptive agents that cannot be managed by traditional risk management techniques only. The article describes the honeypot concept, which is a proactive measure for identifying and gathering information about attackers in order to develop suitable and effective countermeasures. In addition, this article proposes the integration of the honeypot concept into a cyber risk management approach based on the five preparedness mission areas of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
