Risk Monetization

Get an estimate of the financial impact of cyber incidents or attacks in monetary terms

Cyber Risk Monetization involves estimating the financial impact of different kinds of cyber incidents and attacks on an organization based on its risk levels, and expressing this in monetary terms. By putting a dollar amount against specific incident types, risk monetization helps security teams make informed cybersecurity decisions, in addition to getting the leadership’s buy-in on security investments. With a clear idea of how much a breach or a ransomware attack could cost their organization, C-level executives become more open to supporting strategies for reducing cyber risk.

CYRISMA’s Risk Monetization feature gives you an estimate of the financial impact of a potential data breach or ransomware attack based on the value of your data and infrastructure assets, and a per record breakdown of sensitive datasets. The platform also gives you an estimate of residual risk in dollars, and what you can do to reduce this.

With attack impact presented in specific dollar amounts, you are much better placed to get leadership buy-in on increasing security investment than if you talked in technical terms alone.

Know the Value of your Data

The end goal of most cybercriminals trying to breach networks is to get to an organization’s crown jewels, or business-critical data. The greater awareness you have about the value of your own or your clients’ sensitive data, the better placed you will be to protect this data. CYRISMA’s Risk Monetization feature allows you to see what your data is worth on the dark web based on the type of sensitive data you have stored on your systems, and the per record value of this data. Combined with the Data Discovery feature of the platform, the Risk Monetization tool lets you see exactly what you stand to lose financially if you are hit by an attack. The platform also provides an estimate of the recovery costs after a ransomware attack, based on the cost to recover computers, employees’ downtime, and the value of the data that may be exfiltrated. Additionally, you can see your own or your clients’ breach notification costs – something that is often overlooked when organizations assess the financial impact of an attack. A breach results not only in direct financial loss, but also reputational loss and damage to your brand, which ultimately impacts sales and revenue.

Understand your residual risk and how to reduce it

CYRISMA goes a step further than other risk monetization tools to help organizations reduce their residual cyber risk by answering a few simple questions. The Residual Risk Calculator lets you see your residual risk in monetary terms and understand how different risk management measures can help you reduce this risk to a tolerable level. As with any risk, there is no surefire method to eliminate cyber risk completely, but with the right security controls it can be reduced to an acceptable level, where the financial impact of an attack can be absorbed by the organization, as opposed to pushing it out of business.
