Risk assessment is an important step in the development of a secure system: its goal is to identify the possible threats to a system, their impact and, henceforth, to evaluate the connected risks. Although several systematic approaches have been developed to perform a risk assessment task, the current methodologies rely on the quantitative evaluations of experts in a substantial way. This paper addresses the problem of detaching the methodology results from the subjective judgements of experts, by formalising a risk assessment methodology in an appropriate mathematical framework that reduces the subjective aspects in experts’ evaluations
