This article tackles the complexity of assessing the vulnerability of digitized socio-technological systems by application of Entropy weight method. We present the application of a powerful and universal mathematical tool to data-driven applied systems analysis by bridging the socio-technological gap between organizational structures and system development. As information entropy can be significantly reduced, the assessment of the weaknesses in the structure of a socio-technological system improves proportionally to the reduction in information redundancies and losses, as well as to the improvement in information accuracy and efficiency.
