With cyberattacks on the rise, it has never been more important to understand the financial impact of a potential event. Cyber risk quantification — the process of repeatedly and sustainably measuring enterprise cyber risk in terms and metrics relevant to your organization’s operations and strategy — helps organizations to do just that.

Cyber risk quantification further helps organizations make data-driven decisions on their cyber insurance spend, align cyber risk with enterprise strategy, and understand the effectiveness of their cybersecurity investments.
