According to a recent survey from the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), 77 percent of North American risk managers identifying cyber risk as a top-five worry. In the face of mounting financial losses, legal battles, regulatory demands and limited security budgets, Risk Managers are challenged 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? Which insurance policies are best suited to our business?
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 – risk managers can ensure they have secured the value of the business while achieving optimal ROI from their security investments.
“This recognition by the respected Business Insurance publication and panel validates our belief that CyVaR is a game changer for risk managers who are on the hot spot to reduce cyber risk while maximizing ROI. We look forward to driving this important industry discussion,” said Julian Waits, CEO, PivotPoint.
