Part I: Brainstorming list of Assets
Instructions: For the first part of this assignment, brainstorm to determine all of the assets in the chosen environment. Be sure to include all “types’ of assets, e.g., “things” as well as information assets, “people” assets, and moving assets. That list will be used to help complete the Matrix in Part II (the list below is a starting point; there may be more or less assets in your specific environment).
Part II: Evaluation of Assets
Instructions: Complete the matrix below regarding the evaluation of assets in your environment. Please note the instructions for each section of the matrix. Additionally, you can add to this matrix if more space is needed.
A. Be sure to include all “types” of assets, e.g., “things” as well as information assets, “people” assets, and moving assets. Use your brainstorm list to help with this.
B. Catalogue and audit your assets, e.g. How many groups of people, buildings, etc. do you have in the environment?
C. Rank the value of assets
D. Who and/or what is the most vulnerable to be attacked? Give your rationale.
B. State Asset Value
C. Rank Asset Value
D. Rank Vulnerability of Assets
Ex. How many people and/or groups of people?
Ex. The people are #1 in value.
Ex. The people are ranked #2 vulnerability because the building is a bank, making it #1.
Asset valuation simply pertains to the process to determine the value of a specific property, including stocks, options, bonds, buildings, machinery, or land, that is conducted usually when a company or asset is to be sold, insured, or taken over. The assets may be categorized into tangible and intangible assets. Valuations can be done on either an asset or a liability, such as bonds issued by a company.
Tangible assets refer to a company’s assets that have a physical form, which have been purchased by an organization to produce its products or goods or to provide the services that it offers. Tangible assets can be categorized as either fixed asset, such as structures, land, and machinery, or as a current asset, such as cash.
Other examples of assets are company vehicles, IT equipment, investments, payments, and on-hand stocks.
To compute the net tangible assets of a company:
Consider the following simple example:
In the example above, the total assets of Company ABC equal $5 million. When the total intangible assets of $1.5 million are deducted, that leaves $3.5 million. After the total liabilities are deducted, which is another $1 million, only $2.5 million is left, which is the value of the net tangible assets.
Intangible assets are assets that take no physical form, but still provide a future benefit to the company. They may include patents, logos, franchises, and trademarks.
Say, for example, a multinational company with assets of $15 billion goes bankrupt one day, and none of its tangible assets are left. It can still have value because of its intangible assets, such as its logo and patents, that many investors and other companies may be interested in acquiring.
