Exposure Factor (Definition)

The proportion of an asset's value that is likely to be destroyed by a particular risk, expressed as a percentage.

For example, if the value of a building would be reduced from $1,000,000 to $250,000 by a fire, the exposure factor for the risk of fire to the building is 75%.
