Varonis eBook: Cyber Risk Modeling for CISOs

IT Pros

Our  CISO Guide to Cybersecurity Risk ebook is the perfect read for busy IT executive who’ve yet to discover a shocking secret about CEOs and cybersecurity. What’s that secret you ask?

CEOs, CFOs, and other C-levels are just not as interested in standard security reports — ports scanned, patches installed, malware detected — as the IT department. Sad, but true. CEOs are instead focused on running the business, and they look to connect cybersecurity stats to real business risk. To put it bluntly: they are asking what are the chances that a cyber incident will cost the company a given dollar value?

CISOs are generally not equipped to answer this kind of probabilistic question. And that’s why we put together this incredibly readable content (considering the wonky subject matter).

It’s a tuition-free class in risk analysis for MBA-less IT executives. The ebook covers basic concepts in risk modeling — breach loss curves, Value at Risk or VaR — and gives CISOs and CIOs the tools to do their own Monte Carlo simulations, a favorite technique of CEOs. In fact, we provide a cool Excel spreadsheet to kickstart your own modeling efforts.
