I’m one of the lucky members of the RiskLens Professional Services team who has the opportunity to deliver on-site training to new and existing customers. Our training engagements are always interactive, informative, for both our clients and myself, and most importantly a fun time.

In order to make risk analysis a sound, repeatable process, you need to have a series of steps or phases you follow time and time again. I’ve realized that many new to risk quantification, and even those with “mature” risk programs lack a structured approach to risk analysis.

For a few weeks now in blog posts, I’ve referenced the Top 10 cybersecurity risk analysis I conducted with RiskLens for a financial institution customer (see In a Top 10 Risks Analysis, Get These Two Factors Right).

The CISO knew he had a data leak but he didn’t know how big. He suspected data masking was the solution but he couldn’t make a business case for the investment. Those were the problems RiskLens Risk Consultant Cody Whelan and team set out to solve for this client. (No company names here; we respect our clients’ privacy.)

There is nothing finer than a well-constructed and thought-out risk scenario, bar none.
