What is a Threat?

A threat is a possible danger that might exploit a vulnerability to violate security protocols and thus, cause possible harm. A threat can be either deliberate (example, an individual cracker or a criminal organization) or accidental (example, the possibility of a computer malfunctioning, or the possibility of a natural disaster such as an earthquake, a fire, or a tornado) or otherwise a circumstance, capability, action, or event.
