As the risk profile of an organization frequently changes, the ability to make data-driven decisions on where to focus your organization’s cybersecurity efforts is more important than ever before. By prioritizing new technology investments based on risk reduction, you can optimize your organization’s cybersecurity ROI. Once you have assessed your current cybersecurity posture and identified your cybersecurity gaps, you should be asking yourself the following types of questions:
With BitSight Financial Quantification for Enterprise Cyber Risk, it’s faster and easier than ever to assess and communicate how your organization’s financial exposure changes as you invest in controls to improve your security posture. Powered by Kovrr’s proven models developed for cyber insurance, our solution delivers an efficient and easily repeatable means to quantify your organization’s cyber risk financially.

BitSight Financial Quantification for Enterprise Cyber Risk complements your security rating by using multiple data sets from real-world cyber events to simulate financial exposure across the following business impact scenarios:
