Abstract: 
This project will continue to enhance, broaden and transition the CREATE Economic Consequence Analysis Framework. It will place a greater emphasis on transforming CREATE’s sophisticated/high performance computing CGE models to “reduced form” regression equations that can readily be used in-house by DHS staff, beginning with the Office of Policy / Strategy, Planning, Analysis and Risk (SPAR). I will continue to explore refinements of the framework to application to cyber threats. Also, I will work with DHS to develop a CREATE capability in Security Economics more broadly.
