Kovrr has been recognized in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cyber Risk Management this year. We believe this recognition serves as a testament to our commitment to empowering enterprise decision-makers to manage cyber exposure more effectively with in-depth risk analyses. 

The Gartner Hype Cycle: Identifying Technology Trends

Gartner's annual Hype Cycles identify emerging technologies and trends that may impact the industry. According to the report, “Security and risk management leaders should use this research to evaluate the impact of new and evolving solutions to inform appropriate adoption decisions.”


To us, being included in the Cyber Risk Management Hype Cycle signifies the importance of implementing CRQ within a company's overall cyber risk management programs. With financially quantified insights about the types of cyber events likely to occur and their potential ramifications, enterprises can stay proactive, an invaluable strategy given the inevitability of suffering from a cyber attack. 

The Growing Power of Financial CRQ

As cyber risk has steadily embedded itself in both our personal and work environments, a deep understanding of its nature and tendencies has become necessary to protect ourselves. Financial quantification models leverage historical trends and incidents, along with a customized company profile, to predict the precise probability of a cyber event taking place within a given year. 

Risk Prioritization

Armed with this quantified knowledge, organizations can prioritize risk mitigation action plans against those threats that are most likely to occur and most likely to cause resounding financial losses. 

Nowadays, it's virtually impossible for the CISO to address all of the organization's risks simultaneously; there usually isn't the budget or staffing. Resources can be allocated more appropriately by illuminating the most pressing vulnerabilities with CRQ. 

Communication With Non-Cyber Executives

While executives worldwide are beginning to recognize the importance of bringing cybersecurity into overall business planning, the US SEC's July 2023 regulations mandated it. 

A widespread industry issue is that CISOs and board members speak two different languages. However, financial CRQ serves as the penultimate mechanism for translating cybersecurity terms into business-speak. This invaluable tool helps the CISO communicate risk in monetary value, ensuring the total weight of cyber events is understood fully by everyone in the room.

Demonstrating Cost-Effectiveness

In the current volatile market, executives across industries have been compelled to slash budgets wherever possible. Cybersecurity departments haven’t been immune to the economic downturn, and consequently, CISOs must be able to justify their spending initiatives and demonstrate a positive ROI. However, with traditional tools, explicitly demonstrating their cost-effectiveness is incredibly challenging. 

Fortunately, a financial quantification solution quickly renders a cybersecurity initiative's ROI transparent and accessible. In fact, Kovrr's platform provides scenarios illuminating that if an organization upgrades its compliance measures, it'll save a corresponding amount of money if a cyber event occurs. 

The CISO can then plan the most financially sound mitigation method available:

  • Implement tighter security controls.
  • Take on a greater risk appetite.
  • Transfer the risk to an insurance agency.

Whatever they choose, they can easily justify their decisions to a C-suite that's looking to optimize resources and cut costs.
