TYSONS, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nehemiah Security, an internationally recognized supplier of cybersecurity software and services to enterprise and government organizations, today announced the addition of traceability to RQ, Nehemiah’s automated cyber risk platform. This feature makes it possible to trace computed potential losses down to IT exposures. Equipped with RQ, security teams can know all angles of their cyber risk, including the kinds of attacks that could compromise their network, the calculated business impacts, and the vulnerable assets.
The RQ platform is engineered to integrate an organization’s security processes with their business priorities. Like other areas of risk, executive boards know they have options for dealing with cyber risk: avoidance, acceptance, mitigation, or transference. RQ allows security and business leaders to measure cyber risks in financial terms, and with new traceability features, leverage RQ to confidently strategize risk management options.
“Cyber risk is a business function that is realized at a technical level. When a business incurs a financial impact due to a cyberattack, that impact is realized on a physical machine – a laptop, server, database, or other endpoint,” said Jerry Caponera, VP Cyber Risk Strategy, Nehemiah Security. “The market is talking a lot about quantifying cyber risk, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. The true significance of measuring cyber risks is facilitating action. By helping organizations operationalize their cyber risk intelligence, we accelerate the industry transition from reactive security to proactive security.”
Quantifying risk starts with leveraging available data on a company’s business processes and the underlying IT infrastructure to map out the entire environment and establish traceability. Then, RQ analyzes all probable attack paths, models the probability of exposure for business assets, and computes loss over time. Traceability between computed losses and impacted endpoints is visualized in reports generated for business stakeholders. The result is a holistic, 360-degree view of an organization’s cyber risk posture with financially-quantified outputs that can be traced directly to areas of impact and mitigated based on informed decision making.
Organizations that want to manage their cyber risks based on the financial impact to the business are using RQ to continuously monitor and visualize the ties between their business assets and technical exposures. Reports are generated daily, weekly or quarterly to empower informed decision-making in the board room. By providing a complete view of cyber risk in an automated fashion, Nehemiah is pioneering risk management and operationalizing security metrics in the business.
