Approaches to the Creation of Behavioural Patterns of Information System Users

Pavels Osipovs, Arkady Borisov


During the development of the system for anomaly detection in the electronic information system, there is a need to review the existing research in the field of user behaviour modelling. Approaches to user behaviour modelling are very diverse: the algorithms based on neural networks, agent-based approach, Bayesian networks and ontologies. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages, features, and the applicability for the infrastructure of modern complex electronic systems.
