Corporations in almost every industry, government, healthcare, and the power grid are reliant on both operational and mission-critical systems. If these systems were unavailable for just 1 day, the direct and indirect consequences would be catastrophic for society. The higher the reliance on these systems, the higher the vulnerability will be for the global society. Fears about potential security attacks on the information technology infrastructure have even become social and politi- cal concerns. These reasons highlight the importance of understanding the factors that determine systems dependability and reliability.
