The CARVER Assessment

The CARVER assessment provides a detailed analysis of the risk to a specific asset or process. Designed to assess physical assets for the military, it is just as applicable to processes and other asset types. The CARVER assessment goes beyond the standard analysis of effect and probability to look at several other factors that provide a more detailed picture of the asset’s vulnerability to threats and its importance to the owner.

The six factors are:
  • C – Critical
  • A – Access
  • R – Recuperability
  • V – Vulnerability
  • E – Effect
  • R – Recognizability

Designed as a target analysis tool, it is very useful for assessing a risk from a threat or outside point of view. A different perspective can be a powerful.
