Thanks, Deloitte, for listing RiskLens on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, an annual ranking (we’re #233) of the highest revenue growers (a median of 439% YOY!) in tech-driven industries. We’re honored – but it’s also recognition that RiskLens is at the forefront of a movement to bring clarity and discipline to cyber risk management through risk quantification (CRQ) with the FAIR model, the international standard for CRQ that’s the basis of the RiskLens software platform and consulting services.
As RiskLens CEO Nick Sanna explained for our press release: “There remains a significant and persistent gap in many organizations in managing and communicating cyber risk in economic terms. With a variety of cybersecurity frameworks and tools of varying complexity and efficacy, there is an increasing urgency to identify an approach that gets an organization where they need to be as quickly and efficiently as possible.
“RiskLens’ momentum and success in aligning with the FAIR standard and its Technical Advisor role of the FAIR Institute has been our clear differentiation. We are the pioneer in cyber risk quantification and the marriage of our robust software platform with our professional services capabilities makes us the partner of choice for organizations around the globe seeking to build quantified cyber risk management programs.
“To be recognized on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 List this year further solidifies the RiskLens position as the de-facto standard in how organizations across all sizes and sectors assess, communicate and manage cyber risk.”
The Deloitte Fast 500 honor comes in a high-achieving year for RiskLens, including…
- Closing a $20 million Series B financing.
- Launching a fully redesigned version of its platform, evolving its capabilities from industry leading cyber risk analytics to become a full cyber risk management solution.
- Expanded recognition in the cyber analyst and media community of the movement toward financial analysis of cyber risk; for instance, respected tech consultancy Gartner cited RiskLens for “financial data risk assessment” in its widely read Hype Cycle Reports and named CRQ as a necessary component of Integrated Risk Management.
- Multiple partnership agreements signed in 2019 with ServiceNow, Rsam, Wipro and PwC Australia extended RiskLens distribution worldwide.
Meanwhile, the FAIR model and the non-profit, educational FAIR Institute also enjoyed a year of honors and recognition:
- The National Institute of Technology and Standards added FAIR as a recommended resource for users of its Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF), the list of best practices in information security most used by U.S businesses.
- Membership in the FAIR Institute passed 6,500, doubling year over year, and attendance for the annual FAIR Conference in September hit a record level.
- SC Media honored the FAIR Institute as one of the most important industry organizations of the last 30 years and honored FAIR model creator (and RiskLens Chief Risk Scientist) Jack Jones with the Reboot Leadership Award for his work in leading the Institute and the CRQ movement.
Expect a lot more to come from RiskLens in the near future: We're the only company with the the depth of experience and proven track record of empowering Global 2000 enterprises to build and implement CRQ programs through an unmatched combination of technology and service offerings.
