Organizations devote the majority of their cyber budgets to cybersecurity technology, incident planning, staff training, cyber insurance, and consulting, a recent Marsh global survey found.

Many organizations, however, lack the ability to measure cyber risk in a meaningful way. So how are they determining the effectiveness of their investments? What tools or services are most helpful at preventing or mitigating attacks? And which are the least beneficial?

Enter cyber risk quantification, which enables organizations to express cyber risk in financial terms — and estimate the effectiveness of cybersecurity investments.

To learn how your organization can use cyber risk quantification to make objective decisions on its cybersecurity investments, watch the brief video below.

Key takeaways

Efficacy

Establishing which existing cybersecurity investments are driving the most — or least — value enables an organization to better allocate cyber risk capital. 

Prioritization

Understanding which investments are more effective can help an organization decide which cybersecurity investments to prioritize and which to de-emphasize.

Return on investment

Calculating a return on investment enables your organization to make more meaningful investments moving forward.
