Asset information obtained via infrastructure analysis is essential for developing and establishing risk management. However, information about assets acquired by existing infrastructure analysis processes is often incomplete or lacking in detail, especially concerning their interconnected topology. In this paper, we present the Interconnected-asset Ontology, IO, as a step towards a standardized representation of detailed asset information. The utilization of an asset ontology as a
