In this article we propose a model for a risk assessment tool directed towards and tailored specifically for e-government projects. Our goal is to cover the particular threats pertinent to an e-government project context and provide an interface between the broader philosophy of IT governance frameworks and the technical risk assessment methodologies, thus aiding in the successful and secure implementation and operation of e-government infrastructures. The model incorporates a wide range of applicable risk factors and seven accompanying dimensions, assembled into a checklist-like matrix, along with an application algorithm and associated indices, which an evaluator can use to calculate risk.
