Risk Optimization

Ongoing assessment, prioritization, and planning of enterprise-wide risk mitigation

The Risk Optimization suite helps organizations calculate the costs and benefits of security investments across the enterprise, including vendor, technology, insurance, process, and architecture


Key Benefits

Strategic Security Planning

Everything needed for security leadership to make informed long-term decisions
  • Determine security hot-spots, undocumented vulnerabilities, and technical recommendations a customized, strategic security plan
  • Map existing events and breaches to specific limitations in security architectures to inform future planning
  • Maturity Modeling for existing and target states based on organizational preferences
  • Includes tools to incorporate expert judgment and crowdsourced feedback to improve the accuracy of the qualitative assessments
  • Visibility Value and Attack Chain Analysis provides scenario-based analysis and network resilience, price, and impact mapping of potential security investments and tools

Event Simulation

A virtual red team that’s always working to identify operational inefficiencies
  • Organizations get a quantifiable, real-time report of all enterprise hot-spots
  • Dynamic, continuous red teaming of your network environment using the network resilience and Blast Radius scoring and attack exploration engines
  • Continuous virtual red team impact assessments for specified deterministic event sets of interest to risk modelers and operators
  • Daily virtual red team reports for newly identified enterprise vulnerabilities
  • Includes tools to define your own business-specific cyber events to be simulated for optimal response scenarios

Business Continuity Planning

Understand how to keep operations running, no matter whats
  • Builds on the broader QOMPLX:Insurance expertise in man-made and natural peril modeling to help security teams plan for a wider range of events.
  • Includes natural and man-made hazards including earthquakes, tropical cyclones, tornadoes, winter storms, terrorism and political violence
  • Integration with Business Process Management (BPM) provides realistic business- and revenue-based impact assessments
  • Includes BPM and financial P&L dependency links to underlying IT and OT assets
  • Provides a holistic view against target availability, reliability, and recovery thresholds by business unit, geography, etc

Financial Risk Management

Connect the dots between an IT failure and the bottom line
  • Scenario simulations help ensure teams are able to evaluate risk (both low severity but high frequency and high severity but low frequency) in a reasonable way
  • Generated expected probability (EP) curves help users view multi-year costs associated with decisions
  • Tail value at risk (TVaR) assessments reveal complex exposures related to singular events
  • Dynamically explore alternatives to currently deployed security tools, including costs, optional features, and their links to detection and response capabilities
  • Allows risk managers to explore insurance alternatives using defined scenario sets to identify the costs and benefits of different approaches
