Abstract

Disaster is an old challenge to the human society, which is continuously presenting new threats to society and its way of life. Thus, it is important for us to find ways to help mitigate these threats and to provide the society with better solutions to cope with disaster. Over the past decades, disasters have also caused damaged to telecommunication infrastructure, and thus affecting computer networks. In the world that now depends heavily on Internet and computer-based communication, damaged to computer networks will cause a lot of problems to any countries. Most of the work that address the issue of disasters and computer networks role focuses on reestablishing services after the impact. Although this is important, much research is needed in anticipating their impact of disasters on computer networks. This paper aims to propose a model for evaluating changes in Malaysian computer networks traffic caused by a regional disaster in some other part of South East Asia. The model deals with the possibility of a disaster that triggers additional disasters that may lead to more network failure.
