NIST SP 800-30 R1
According to the generic risk model introduced in NIST SP 800-30 R1, a risk is decomposed into a couple of factors as the diagram denotes.
Threat Event and TTP
A threat event involves tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP for short). It’s a good practice to describe a threat event by starting with a verb so that it can be matched with threat sources to shape threat scenarios.
This good practice can be found in Table E-2 of Appendix E.
