Welcome to the CXOWARE blog. We hope you’ll join us for lively and good natured discussion about risk and risk issues!  We’re risk geeks, plain and simple. We’re big advocates of the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) framework for quantifying risk.

Announcing RiskCalibrator

We're proud to announce the release of RiskCalibrator - CyberRisk, its enterprise cybersecurity risk analysis application and full integration with FAIRiq. The release coincides with substantial market demand from senior level executives wanting a clearer understanding of their financial loss exposure due to cybersecurity incidents.

Business decisions are made every day by Board members and C-Level executives based on a financial perspective of their operational, market, and strategic risk. Cybersecurity risk has historically been communicated to executives with qualitative terms and statements such as "High, Medium, & Low" or "Red, Yellow, & Green." Without a "dollars and cents" perspective, executives have difficulty understanding cybersecurity risk in the same monetary business context as other forms of risk. As a result, it's difficult to establish and assess the sufficiency of a cybersecurity risk mitigation budget.

CXOWARE's RiskCalibrator helps solve this problem by quantifying an organization's cybersecurity risk into monetary terms. Armed with RiskCalibrator, Chief Risk Officers, CIO's, and Chief Information Security Officers are now able to translate technical security information into business intelligence that is clearly understood by C-Level executives and Board Directors. The end result is better informed decisions related to cybersecurity, more effective oversight, and fiduciary care structured to manage and optimize loss exposure.
