Locations

A Locations object is a collection of location objects connected by links. A location could be anything ranging from a room, corridor, or even a building. Within a location it is possible to specify instances of assets or personas. CAIRIS makes it possible to overlay risks onto location models, to explore the impact security might have on a physical location.
