“There remains a significant and persistent gap in many organizations in managing and communicating cyber risk in economic terms,” Nick Sanna, CEO, RiskLens. “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.”
“This year marks the 25 th anniversary of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Once again, we saw innovation across the board, with software companies continuing their dominance of the top ten. It’s always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in.”
