Network security risks compromises network asset, resources, rules, policy and guidelines. These compromises adversely affect the network performances by altering or tampering with the three set network security objectives i.e. Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) of network. The overall goal of network management is to maximize network performance. The proactive management of security risk of a network is thus a necessity requirement for effective and efficient performances of the network. This study aimed at developing a framework that automatically performs predictions on network security situations. This study presented a prediction model based on Bayesian Network applied to predetermine the effect of network security risk factors on the network Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. The proposed model utilized the probability characteristics of Artificial Intelligence method to address the challenges being faced by network administrators in using objective metrics to measure their network security and justify the performance of their network, rather than relying on their instinct or experience. The proposed scheme measures the security risk quantitatively and predicts network performances using objectives metrics.
