Project title: Cloud Based Conflicting Incentives risk analysis
Project description: Risk Analysis is an integral part of any business activity. It helps to identify and manage potential problems that could undermine key business initiatives or projects. Risk analysis and management seems to be an obscure activity of any organization as there are very few case studies available on public portal. CIRA is a new and promising method for risk analysis. There is a need to enhance CIRA such that it can be adopted by large number of organizations across the globe. Considering the advantage of efficiency and effectiveness opportunities that cloud deployment offers, an approach to offer CIRA as a secure cloud service is studied in this research work. Cloud delivers highly scalable distributed computing platforms in which computational resources are offered as a services, platform and infrastructure. Since high quality risk analysis can be a difficult, time consuming and costly task, it seems like a very good candidate for explorations into the possibility of harvesting the benefits from a ‘cloudification’ of both risk analysis concepts and support technologies. The objective of this research work is to 1) Investigate the benefits of implementing CIRA services in cloud while fulfilling security and privacy requirements, 2) Assess functionality of CIRA method eligible to migrate into cloud environment 3) Construct prototype to support CIRA method through cloud service 4) Evaluate the prototype. Design, analysis, modeling, and prototype construction will be done using Design Science Research Methodology.
