BREAKING NEWS: MAY 10, 2018

CYBER RISK QUANTIFICATION DEMO VIDEO AVAILABLE

You asked for demo of the RSA Archer Cyber Risk Quantification use case (CRQ) and we are pleased to tell you that it has been posted to the private RSA Archer Customer/Partner Community.

 

CRQ quantifies an organization’s financial risk exposure to cybersecurity events. The Cyber Risk Quantification use case helps CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) to prioritize risk mitigation efforts based on business and financial impact, and to communicate the impact of cyber risk in financial terms to senior management and the board. Armed with this financial data, organizations can make more informed decisions regarding their risk and security investments. Check it out today.
