The Nature of Risk and the Privacy Calculus

Ontology of Risk


In order to handle the complex relationships between concepts in the Risk domain I am developing an ontology of risk.  This will allow for cause and effect relationships as well as the classic hierarchical relationships found in taxonomies.

This diagram highlights one particular node ‘harrassment’ and looks at what might lead to this risk as well as what consequences might result.  This is generated from a test set of data from Haynes and Robinson (2015).

Also attached is a set of slides from a workshop at which this diagram was first presented.  The workshop was held in January 2019 and hosted by ISKO UK (International Society for Knowledge Organization – UK chapter).
