Automated Data Availability Modeling According to Information Management Structure
Data availability plays an important role in the workflow of an enterprise. Therefore it is necessary to evaluate the availability of different types of data used by an enterprise. Most existing solutions for evaluation of information availability are based solely on hardware and software properties. Some solutions have information management process based evaluation, which requires security expert knowledge and work for asset, threat and vulnerability identification. This paper proposes a solution dedicated for small and medium enterprise, providing probabilistic metric of information availability and requiring no security knowledge. This solution is based on information management structure and it integrates equipment availability metrics from hardware and software risk assessment.
