The analysis of what the consequences are and how they happen is very similar for both safety and security. Something happens to your system that cause it to do what you do not want. That "something" can be happenstance, or it can be deliberate. But the consequences are determined exactly the same way by the system properties in both cases. For analytical purposes, for security incidents you turn some of the possible events into quasi-Booleans (turning happenstance into intention) and formally propagate through the Causal Fault Graph.
