Over the past few years, there has been a worrying trend of increment in number of web application intrusions. Based on reports released by reliable sources, these incidents are due to the lack of experts in performing accurate risk assessment to mitigate the risk while performing web security testing. Risk assessment is the core process in providing appropriate recommendations when dealing with vulnerabilities discovered in a web application. Therefore this research paper will be highlighting the problem of insufficient experts to guide the less experienced information security analyst in conducting effective risk assessment. The objective of this research will be to design an expert system to aid the less experienced system analyst in conducting accurate risk assessment during the absence of experts. The expert system will cover all risk rating of vulnerabilities included in the OWASP Top 10 2013, and the target user will only be the less experienced information system analyst. The methodology used in the research would be based on the expert system development life cycle model. The main activity conducted is the construction of knowledge base of the proposed expert system. Based on the results of collected knowledge and information from the internet as well as interviewing experts, the knowledge developer will construct a decision tree which aids in the development of the expert system in later phase of the research.
