Ulrich, Senior Scientist with CyberPoint InternationalOrganizations are swiftly shifting their assumptions about cyber breaches: it is now a matter of “when”, not “if”. Every organization in every industry faces cyber risk. A critical infrastructure operator is concerned about physical damage to its control systems; a healthcare provider worries about exposure of its patients’ sensitive personal health information; a retailer fears theft of customers’ payment card data. Assets carry value for organizations, but they can become a liability since they pose a tempting target for cybercriminals. Yet as common as cyber-attacks and data breaches have become, the process of quantifying cyber risk in financial terms is still a guessing game, challenging CISOs to demonstrate they are lowering risk, justify their investments, and convey the company’s cyber risk in financial terms to C-level officers and the Board. Moreover, due to this lack of actuarial data, insurers are struggling to underwrite and offer effective cyber insurance policies.This talk addresses an approach to quantifying cyber risk. Cyber Value-at-Risk (CyVaR) is a technology for quantifying an institution’s monetary Value-at-Risk due to cyber threat, based on factors specific to the institution and the cyber threats it faces. CyVar’s methodology is inspired by computational techniques used in the financial industry to quantify the “typical worst case” losses of a portfolio due to price movements of underlying instruments. In addition to calculating VaR, CyVaR identifies the optimal countermeasures to reduce risks given a fixed maximum level of expenditure. Technologies like CyVaR help CISOs answer the following questions: • What portion of the value of our revenue-driving business applications and processes is placed at risk by cyber threats?• What are the best options to reduce that risk, and how should I prioritize spend?• How much risk can I buy down by exercising those options, and how much cyber insurance do we need to cover the remainder?As in prior years ISACA-CMC will offer door prize to attendees (must be present to win).Price: (Please note that the monthly meeting prices have been reduced for this event)Members $45.00Non-Members $60.00Full-time Students $20.00Late Registrations after December 9, 2016: No additional charge for this meeting, however please note that space is limited for this event; registrations will be filled on a first come, first served basis (Member Prices are for all ISACA, ISSA, AGA, and CFE members).We offer 3 payment options: • Pay by credit card • Check (Pay at Door) - Make checks payable to ISACA-CMC • Gov't training request - Bring your training request to the meeting or if you require an invoice, please send your request to Ejaz Younas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
