This paper introduces a framework that provides a model for describing security measures and their relative effectiveness as well as importance. This model enhances computer security training and educational curriculum by providing experimental data and analysis to educators and students. Business environments will benefit from this model by enabling more cost effective allocation of scarce IT and security resources. Additional benefits include but are not limited to better development of operating systems, applications, and user interfaces.
