The world is going through challenging times and cybersecurity is no exception. The last two years have highlighted the financial and operational impact of cyber attacks on businesses of all sizes and sectors, and their supply chains. Critical infrastructure is under attack, and ransomware attacks have increased by 486 per cent over the past two years. As cybercrime is now estimated to cost the world economy more than $1 trillion, businesses, investors, and governments struggle to assess and quantify cyber risk.
We are entering a new era for cybersecurity and businesses worldwide recognise its urgency; it must be evaluated and priced, whereas data and analytics need to be the heart of this significant market transformation. The recent partnership BitSight established with Moody's is an excellent example of a way to help customers manage cyber risk in an increasingly digital world by bringing together best practices to their governance strategies.
Being exposed to cyber risk is an inevitable part of doing business today, so cybersecurity is no more just an 'IT problem' as it once was. However, building and maintaining a strong cybersecurity programme requires constant vigilance, making the process of measuring performance over time quite challenging. You might ask 'What measurement standard should organisations strive for, and why?', 'How does the organisation's performance impact their financial exposure to cyber risk?' and 'How can business leaders more effectively determine, according to the organisation's risk appetite, if they are willing to accept, mitigate, or transfer cyber risk via cyber insurance?'
