Information Asset Modeling for Risk Analysis

An information technology-driven organization and its revenue generation is presented through information technology that increasingly provides their key functions through computer systems and networks. These kinds of environments have prompted every day cyber threats through computer technology and the Internet infrastructure. Current issues are rising regarding the risk analysis of information technology transactions. In order to fulfill accurate risk estimation of this, different approaches are required to consider what each information asset is and what cyber vulnerabilities it is open to. In order to succeed, it is first necessary to identify its model of information asset and then measure the value of it. This paper attempts to show the methods and approaches in applying risk analysis to the information technology field. The paper identifies key elements consisting of assets of a computer system and then creates a mathematic function to calculate its value based on the asset elements. The research results will yield an implementation of an automatic risk assessment tool for computer networks.
