The belief rule base (BRB) serves as a robust framework for constructing and managing decision-making systems within network security, accommodating the inherent uncertainty and imprecision prevalent in such environments. This study delves into the integration of uncertainty and imprecision in BRB construction, highlighting strategies for managing the BRB throughout its lifecycle. The management of the BRB encompasses maintenance and update strategies, addressing the dynamic nature of network environments. Techniques for handling dynamic network environments, monitoring and evaluating BRB performance, and incorporating feedback mechanisms for continuous improvement are explored. These management strategies ensure the efficacy and relevance of the BRB in detecting and mitigating the possible evolving security threats.
