On behalf of CERT (http://www.cert.org/) at Carnegie Mellon University, 
I’m looking for volunteers to participate in an online study that 
seeks to understand how IT professionals assess network risk. Details 
about the study purpose are provided below.

This short survey hosted by Survey Gizmo should take you approximately 
20 minutes to complete (see link below). Try not to contemplate the 
answers to these questions for long periods of time; quick responses are 

Study link: 

Participant requirements: 1. Must be at least 20 years old. 2. Must have 
some work experience or knowledge about network security.

Background Study Information: This is a study that seeks to understand 
what information you think is important to formulating a perception of 
network risk. Computed network risk may be very different from how 
network professionals actually perceive network risk. In addition, two 
people who work within the same network might have different viewpoints 
about network risk. Which perspective is most accurate? We would like to 
study these problems in order to improve risk management models.

In this study, you will review a short description of a network and 
answer questions about your interpretation of network risk. Keep in mind 
that there are no wrong answers in this survey; we are trying to 
understand your personal opinions with respect to network risk. We know 
that your answers depend on certain network circumstances; some of which 
we were unable to include in our study without confounding the study 
results. Once you review the consent form and the instructions, the 
study should take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.

There is no risk to participating in this research study. We will not 
ask you for personally identifying information and in order to respect 
your privacy, we ask that you do not provide identifying information in 
your responses. However, we do ask you for some basic demographic 
information about your occupation. You will be compensated for your 
participation; instructions for how to be compensated will be provided 
once you complete the entire study.

Please understand that this is only an invitation and you are neither 
expected, nor required to participate but we would be grateful for any 
help you can provide. We would also appreciate it if you pass this 
invitation on to fellow colleagues.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send a message to 
surveygizmo-users at sei.cmu.edu.
