Abstract

KonTraG and Basel II explicitly require enterprises to implement a risk management system including a forewarn function. Monitoring systems for technical infrastructure deliver basic data in the sense of this function, that can be used for IT-risk management. Yet, this data has to be processed and selected appropriately, in order to be applied for usage as risk indicators in a risk management system. On the basis of system monitoring this paper introduces a bottom-up approach, on which an IT-risk management system can be implemented.
