PivotPoint Risk Analytics

In the face of unavoidable breaches, mounting financial losses, legal battles, regulatory demands and limited security budgets, CISOs are on the hot spot to answer the tough questions from their CEOs and Boards of Directors

PivotPoint Risk Analytics, the global experts in cyber value-at-risk analytics, announced today that they will be attending the 2016 RSA Conference in San Francisco, California from February 29 – March 4 and the 2016 Advisen Cyber Risk Insights Conferenc e from March 2 – March 3 and will speak at AGC’s 2016 Information Security & Broader Technology Growth Conference February 20 – March 1, 2016. During these events PivotPoint will be bringing together CISOs, risk managers and cyber insurers together for the first time to create a common language for financially quantifying the cost of a cyber breach.

“In the face of unavoidable breaches, mounting financial losses, legal battles, regulatory demands and limited security budgets, CISOs are on the hot spot to answer the tough questions from their CEOs and Boards of Directors such as: What is the potential business impact of a cyber breach to our most important assets? How do we optimize and justify our security investments? How do I know that we’ve actually lowered our risk exposure? How are insurance policies estimated and which ones are best suited to our business?” said Julian Waits, CEO, PivotPoint.

“During the RSA and Advisen conferences we’ll be driving this important discussion and helping organizations to navigate this complex landscape so they can manage their security program like a business,” continued Waits.

PivotPoint’s flagship product, CyVaR™ is the first solution to address the industry need to financially quantify cyber risk. By predicting the cost of successful cyber breaches to an organization and translating risk into the common language of business – dollars and cents – security executives and risk managers can ensure they have secured the value of the business while achieving optimal ROI from their security investments.
