A Quantitative Study: Using the Latin Square Design Model in the Prioritization of Network Security Threats

As the same computer networks become increasingly important to organisational business processes, cyber criminals continue to target organisational computer networks. In the business and government planning process, strategic planning and addressing IT security threats play an important role. This quantitative study examines whether it is possible to effectively apply the Latin Square Design (LSD) model to the prioritisation of cybersecurity threats and to relate in-depth measures of information assurance protection to those threats. The methods used in this study consisted of scanning 10 cybersecurity websites such as the US CERT (United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team) Department of Homeland Security and the SANS Institute (SysAdmin, Audit, Network and Security) using the Likert Scale Model for the top ten list of cyber threats facing organisations on the website and in-depth network defence steps to combat them. In order to decide whether the Likert scale and the LSD model could be effectively implemented to prioritise information assurance steps to secure organisational computing devices, a comparison of each cyber security vulnerability was then made using LSD. The study results refute the H0 null hypothesis that LSD does not affect the relationship between the top ten cybersecurity threat based variables rating of 10 cybersecurity websites and the independent safety variables in depth measures used to defend organisational devices against cyber-attacks.
