In this independent study, we detail two fields of game theory, traditional and evolutionary. After establishing foundational concepts in both, we explore risk management and cybersecurity through a game theoretic lens, focusing on some current applications in both fields. The research culminates in an application case of a game theoretic model for the 2017 Equifax data breach. To conclude, we discuss the implications of this model and future work involving evolutionary game theory in cybersecurity/risk management.
