    • Abstract:
      This study suggests an integrated framework to quantify cyber attack impacts on the U.S. airport security system. A cyber attack by terrorists on the U.S. involves complex

      strategic behavior by the terrorists because they could plan to invade an airport electronic system without any U.S. border or entry point. At the same time, any defending

      entity must consider the complex processes that may cause turmoil. The possibility of simultaneous threats from cyber attacks causes another difficulty for defending

      entities to secure their airports. This highlights the need for improved, integrated inter-governmental collaboration. Collaborative networking requires close inter-governmental coordination to overcome the risk of cyber-terrorist threats. Constructing a new model for strategic cyber-terror security requires a combination of both

      competitive and cooperative game situations in order to seek specific strategies against cyber-terrorism. Also, the airport shut-down would have ripple impacts throughout

      the domestic and international economies, which raises the necessity to analyze the impacts with a spatially disaggregate economic model. To combine both competitive

      and cooperative game situations with an economic impact model, this study suggest a Game Theoretic National Interstate Economic Model (G-NIEMO) framework. GNIEMO identifies which airport may be most vulnerable in the event that an airport electronic system is subsequently shut-down. Based on the probabilistic costs of airport

      closure, the model provides the economic importance of cyber security by place of event and by type of industry. From G-NIEMO, equilibrium strategies for U.S. airport

      protection can be identified and a general guideline for the evaluation of resource allocations can be passed onto the U.S. government agencies.
