Subject: Re: [cti] Attack Motivations

This Taxonomy did come from an existing well vetted solution. aka the Intel Threat Agent work.  But given that work applies to general threat actors, we are trying I tailor it more specifically to the cyber space.

The reason I am looking to add a few values is I have been reviewing every taxonomy I can find and make sure our terms and definitions cover everything that cerebrally exists.

@Patrick/ISightPartners or @EclecticIQ:  Can you provide reference?

Intrusion Sets and Threat Actors both use the Attack Motivations vocabulary.  Right now we have the following terms in that vocab:

  1. accidental
  2. coercion
  3. dominance
  4. ideology
  5. notoriety
  6. organizational-gain
  7. personal-gain
  8. personal-satisfaction
  9. revenge
  10. unpredictable

I propose that we add the following thee terms to this list, I missed them when I was putting this list together.  

  1. amusement
  2. advantage (competitive, political, economic)
  3. anarchy
