Practical CRQ for Risk Management: Event Overview

As the global cost of cyber events continues to rise annually and chief information security officers (CISOs) are increasingly asked to achieve a state of cyber resilience with limited resources, cyber risk quantification has become an essential tool for developing effective risk management strategies. 

Cyber risk quantification (CRQ) equips CISOs and other cyber risk managers with the ability to translate a complex and technical subject into financial implications. Because key stakeholders, such as other C-suite executives and board members, are accustomed to dealing with risk at the monetary level, they can, therefore, easily understand how to incorporate cyber risk mitigation plans into the broader business strategy. 

During the session, Dr. Freund will delve into the practical aspects of CRQ, providing attendees with specific approaches they can leverage to ensure cybersecurity is incorporated within high-level discussions, enhancing their organization’s overall risk management practices.

A few of the more specific topics to be covered include:

The Basics of Quantifying Cyber Risks

The session begins by exploring the fundamentals of cyber risk quantification. Attendees will gain a solid understanding of the basic principles and methodologies that have been used to quantify risk in other business areas and how those same approaches have been applied in the cybersecurity space to help organizations better manage resources.

The Evolution of Cyber Risk Quantification Approaches

Dr. Freund will review the evolution of cyber risk quantification from its earliest form in the early 2000s to the current on-demand platforms, such as the one offered by Kovrr. The session will highlight key milestones that have shaped the field, providing valuable context for discerning the practical ways risk practitioners utilize CRQ. 

The Role of CRQ in Today’s Regulatory Environment

With government entities and other regulatory bodies increasingly passing laws that emphasize the criticality of cyber risk management, demanding that it be elevated to the boardroom level, CRQ has emerged as an invaluable facilitator of compliance. Dr. Freund will discuss this applicability, with a specific focus on the SEC's latest cybersecurity disclosure regulations. 

Methods for Identifying High-Level Cyber Risks

An effective risk management strategy begins with accurate cyber risk identification. The portion of the session will cover how on-demand CRQ models such as Kovrr's identify a company's unique exposure to various cyber events and loss scenarios, leveraging objective data regarding the cyber risk landscape to produce an unbiased assessment.

Real-World Case Studies of CRQ Usage

Dr. Freund will then offer real-world case studies that demonstrate the various ways in which CISOs have harnessed CRQ to optimize cybersecurity programs and gain the necessary budget and buy-in from key stakeholders. Some of the use cases include cyber insurance cost reduction, risk mitigation prioritization, and calculation of ROI for streamlined communication.

An Interactive CRQ Question and Answer Segment

Attendees will likewise have the opportunity to discuss specific concerns and questions regarding cyber risk quantification, cyber risk management, or any other aspect of cybersecurity that's relevant to the session. Having access to Dr. Jack Freund's expertise is a highly valuable experience that participants would do well to take advantage of!
