چکیده:

Organizations leverage security risk analysis methods to detect and prioritize the security risks. One of the main parameters in risk analysis is assets value which is used tocalculate the security impact of probable threats. Although, assets are not independent and their values usually depend toother assets, most of the current approaches do not consider the interdependency of assets in the valuation process. In this paper, a model for asset valuation regarding dependencies between assets is presented. The model is based on a meta-model which dependencies between assets and asset types are well-specified.Then, the value propagation graph is defined to represent the effects of different assets to each other value and then analgorithm is presented to calculate assets value. Finally, the effectiveness of the model is verified by a real case study. The presented approach gains a meta-model to address anydependency between assets in different layers of an organization. Also, use of the value propagation graph assures that all types of assets that affect value of an asset are considered for valuating assets.
