Remove the burden of cyber risk management

Banking, insurance, private equity, and other financial services companies face the burden of reducing risk without increasing spending. Current GRC tools lack the visibility and insight to deliver quantified intelligence on which teams can act.

Axio is for security professionals with limited resources and budgetary constraints. You can rapidly link business strategies through cyber risk assessments and then leverage quantified risk scenarios to optimize cybersecurity spending.

From check-the-box compliance to continuous cyber improvement

As a financial services institution, you must meet prescribed regulatory requirements. However, compliance isn’t a means to an end. Minimizing cybersecurity risk begins with identifying and implementing cybersecurity improvements beyond check-the-box obligations.

Assess Your Risk

Critical cyber risk scenarios in business terms

Financial intuitions have some of the most complex application portfolios, cross-operational dependencies, and dense customer footprints of any industry. Cyber criminals are keen to take advantage of this complexity, wreaking widespread financial, legal, and reputational havoc.

But, traditional methods for cybersecurity decision-making are time-consuming and not scalable. Cybersecurity risk is often communicated in purely technical terms, despite being an existential risk to the business, which makes it difficult for executives to understand the need and approve budgets.

Understanding the impact of a successful cyber attack is critical to making effective decisions. With Axio, quantifying your priority risk scenarios lets you communicate clearly by illuminating the risks that could cripple your business.

Quantify Your Risk

Define project priorities and manage to your goals

Reactive security initiatives can come at the expense of longer-term cybersecurity program evolution and optimization. That’s why effective cybersecurity programs need to start with a strong cybersecurity roadmap.

Meanwhile, looming compliance mandates and third-party organizations are increasing the need for documentation and reporting.

With Axio, you can set a future state for your cybersecurity posture, track progress toward milestones, and keep a log of documentation and evidence.
