How we leverage Cyber Risk Quantification Protiviti’s approach to cyber risk quantification includes input from business users, asset owners, and key technical experts Protiviti empowers our clients to make data-driven decisions. Cyber risk quantification allows you to:Make effective risk management and budget investment decisions.Cyber risk quantification helps you understand risks in terms of impact on overall business value while significantly reducing uncertainty and narrowing the range of potential loss outcomes. This helps manage and mitigate risks by allocating appropriate budget, time, and resources to risk management programmes.Prioritise risks, assets, and threats to identify and protect what matters most.Cyber risk quantification identifies critical risks that are the most likely to occur. Using the data from these analyses, effective comparisons can help decide which risks should be prioritised and which risks can be revisited later. This can save time and money while mitigating impactful risks.Communicate and express risk to executive leadership in a commonly understood, repeatable way.Through probabilistic analysis and the use of financial models, quantifiable data can be turned into valuable information. Communicating the range of potential loss in a commonly understood way – i.e., financial terms – allows management to clearly understand and make more informed investments.
