Axio strives to help clients optimize their portfolio of security controls and insurance to make cyber risk manageable, today announces its strategic partnership with North Highland, a global management consulting firm. As part of North Highland’s partner program, North Highland clients, with a focus on those in the energy and utilities sectors, now have access to Axio’s technology and services as part of ongoing programs to address and protect against cyber security events. The partnership brings Axio into the partner sphere with Cordence Worldwide, a global management consulting alliance of which North Highland is a member.

Axio’s comprehensive solutions help companies quantify the impact of potential cyber events in financial terms, expose gaps in security controls and insurance programs, and determine where to invest to effectively reduce cyber risk. The Axio partnership with North Highland focuses on delivering:

  • Exposure Quantification. Understanding the types and scale of financial impacts that could arise from a complex cyber event.
  • Cyber Program Evaluation. Measuring the current maturity of the cyber security program, establishing a targeting profile, and building the plan to achieve higher maturity.
  • Insurance Analysis & Stress Test. Understanding the organization’s ability to recover from a complex and costly cyber event, and how the insurance portfolio will respond.

“All of our partners are strategically selected to provide bold, best-in-class service with a unique and compelling perspective. Axio is well-versed in the cyber security challenges that modern businesses in the energy and utilities sectors face and brings the right combination of expertise, experience, and capability to support our clients end-to-end, from strategy through delivery.  This partnership gives our clients a greater opportunity to move beyond compliance and truly solve their cyber risk challenges,” says Teri Mendelovitz, global energy and utilities lead and vice president at North Highland.

“The landscape of cybersecurity is changing at an exponential pace, and companies that utilize a risk based approach to continually optimize their portfolio of security technologies and controls are far better positioned to stand the test of time. We are pleased to be working with a firm as well regarded as North Highland to deliver our unique, proven methodology around cyber program evaluation and risk quantification to their clients,” says Scott Kannry, CEO, Axio.
