A cybersecurity program that enables your business’s strategy

A risk-based approach to cybersecurity program management enables successful communication of your initiatives and helps you secure the budget required to defend against cyber attacks.


Prioritizing cyber initiatives while your attack surface is growing by the minute


You must show your board you’ve made the right decisions, especially after an attack


Comprehensive cyber risk management starts with understanding your baselines, quantifying the financial impact of doomsday events, and monitoring your attack surface in real time

Intuitive cyber program reporting that’s easily understood by Boards of Directors and executive stakeholders

Cybersecurity decision-making loses efficacy without meaningful communication –which means translating the technical details of your cyber risks, goals, and program into business-centric language that non-technical stakeholders can understand.

You need the right tools to eliminate confusion and debate when presenting how your team addresses cyber risks. Being an effective CISO is not only about identifying and defending against the most susceptible and high-impact risks to the business but clearly showing how you can reduce or transfer them. Visually intuitive analyses leave no room for misalignment about program KPI’s among CEOs, boards members, and other senior stakeholders.

Leave no opportunities for budget blocking

Qualitative data delays approval for the cybersecurity budget you need now. Heatmaps may look pretty but lack substance, often unable to withstand the objectivity of in-depth analysis from a CFO or other budget holder. Make your cyber investment decisions defensible with Cyber Risk Quantification, demonstrating clear tradeoffs as well as the return on investment of an improvement project— in dollars and cents, not a color change.

Transform your cybersecurity program into a business enabler, not a blocker

When cyber disaster strikes, fingers point to the CISO. After all, you oversee the enterprise’s security program. Employees must work collaboratively and depend on each other to truly improve cyber posture. This often becomes challenging without one clear vision. A risk-based approach gives you the tools to replace a laundry list of to-dos and fire fighting with an immediate priority your team can act upon today.
